Coleen Sheran Singer, nearly 33

Coleen travelled extensively and did many wonderful things. She was particularly fond of an avant-garde theater in Washington, D.C. called the Woolly Mammoth. Coleen loved to pick flowers, shop for jeans, dance, work with crafts, and drink medium ice coffees. (H/T Laurie Petersen)

Kevin James Patrick Casey, 69, "the consummate postmodernist"

As the consummate postmodernist, he was inordinately vexed; possibly by a broken home, transcontinental train hopping, demoralizing encounters with politicos and literati, Viet Nam service (mostly in the brig) and younger brother Jeff's premature death. (H/T to Claudia Hearn)

Jesus Christ, son of God, king of the Jews

CHRIST Jesus Jesus Christ, Son of... God, died at mid-day on Friday after hours of long suffering. It was not a peaceful death. He was born to the late Mary and Joseph (with the help of the Holy Spirit). Jesus worked most of His life under His father Joseph... until He was around 30 years of age, when He began performing miracles, healing the sick, raising the dead, and claiming to be both the Son of God and King of the Jews.

Emily DeBrayda Phillips pens the story of her life

It pains me to admit it, but apparently, I have passed away. Everyone told me it would happen one day but that's simply not something I wanted to hear, much less experience. Once again I didn't get things my way! That's been the story of my life all my life. (H/T Lisa Sayers)

Henry Norman Saurage III, left behind a sense of humor

I was sad to leave behind my wonderful high school sweetheart and devoted wife of 57 years, Donna Maddox Saurage. However I died at peace after hearing her say, "When you're gone, I don't want another husband . . . I want a dog!"

Mrs. Gordon began making puzzles in the early 1950s, but might have done so even sooner had it not been for the televised presence of M⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ B⬜⬜⬜⬜.
