AN OBITUARY FOR JESUS

  • janine

    was Jesus self-educated or home-schooled???

    • Kathy Schiffer

      Well gosh, I guess he was home-schooled, wasn’t he? :-)

  • Missi Riddick

    Kathy,
    Do you happen to know the author of the obituary? It is beautiful, and I would like to have it printed in our local newspaper; however, the publisher has declined citing copyright infringement. He said if I could get the name of the author along with his autohorization, he would print it. Thanks for your help.

    Blessings,
    Missi Riddick

      I’m glad you like it, Missi, but I’m afraid I don’t know its origin. It’s one of those things that’s gone viral as an email.

      Missi, I wrote this obituary in 1976. During the 1990s it was printed in a magazine in San Francisco with my permission. I do have a copyright on it, however a woman I do not know personally has turned it into a newspaper clipping and changed the words a bit. If you wish, I could send you the original with the copyright symbol and my permission to have it printed. I have often thought of pursuing this legally, but to this day, I have not. Perhaps I should. Seeing “Author Unknown” does give me an uncomfortable feeling.

  • Kathy Schiffer

    Hello, Maureen– Congratulations, if you are the author of this excellent piece. If I recall, I ran across it as one of those Facebook memes that goes around and is “shared” a thousand times.

    I would certainly appreciate seeing your original!

    Kathy
