Will Be Missed By Mary

I was talking to my sister yesterday and she mentioned that a person we had gone to school with had passed away.

http://www.ucmp.berkeley.eduJoseph LeConte (1869-1901) 

(isn't this an odd looking headstone)

..anyway, on with my story ....

I didn't have clue one who she was talking about and the more information she gave the more I realized I really didn't know the person.

Our conversation progressed into how he had died and she mentioned that someone (name removed to protect myself from the wrath of this "someone") told her he had died at home so that could only mean that he had taken his life.

  What!!??   Really?!!  Is she on crack? Why would anyone say something like that?

I said, "isn't she the same person who, when Darren McKennley (name made up) died and the last line on  his obituary said 'will be sadly missed by Mary' (his wife's name was Heather - name made up), she ("someone" ) said that she had known about this affair for many years, had run into Mary several times and that not many people had known about his indiscretion - then the paper came out the following day with  the obit typo changed to  'Will be sadly missed by Many' ".

She ("someone") is such an ass.

Oh my gosh. She is an ass.

Is her name Olive? "All of" her stuff is incorrect. :)

I know this is serious but I couldn't help chuckling at the many / Mary. Ass indeed! Xx

We thought it was pretty funny too and she was quite embarrassed when we called her on it!

Some people aren't happy unless they're stirring the pot.

"Someone" must be very unhappy in her own life.
