Intelligent, perceptive, artistic and kind

"Peter Bates Christian of Poquonnock Road, Groton, passed away Monday, April 14, 2008, at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital, age 48 years.

An intelligent, perceptive, artistic, and kind man, Peter none the less drank himself to death.

He is survived by his brother Matthew, friends Lydia Dolan, Ellis Tucker, J. Holmes, John Fridge, and assorted drinking buddies who should consider Peter's death a glimpse into their own possible futures."

I alerted a friend to this when it appeared in our local paper. She cut it out and posted it on her fridge, where I saw it at dinner last evening. This is the entire obit, no mention of funeral or burial plans.
