I like the Southern Gothic reference to shading the truth and talking in euphemisms.
I remember 8 or 10 years ago, a gal my age died from drinking herself to death at the age of 49.
Her family was prominent in the spirits industry.
Her obit read that she had "died peacefully at home", when we all know that death from late stage alcoholism is not a peaceful way to pass on to the next stage.
My obit will certainly speak to my sobriety and the fact that I have tried to help others along the way.
No time soon, though, i hope.
