XXXXX YYYYY Stopped Smoking Today
Today in the San Luis Obispo TRIBUNE a loving obituary for a man whose real name I will not use (although his last name is one of my family names). The obit begins with the name followed by these words: "stopped smoking March 11." That's all the comment on the cause of death, and the whole little obit is written with love. All the hope that he would stop killing himself with cigarettes is in that first sentence.
