If you’re a famous person, like a public figure, celebrity, athlete, author, musician, scoundrel, etc., it’s possible the newspapers have already written your obituary. Newspapers write obituaries in advance so they’re prepared to quickly publish them when the famous person passes away.
Weird, isn’t it? But, if you’re like the rest of us non-famous people, your obituary will likely be written after you pass away. Hopefully, it will be written by a loving family member or friend who can tell your story and give you the tribute you deserve.
