You know how obituaries read. Very funereal, to say the least.
Words that struggle to capture the loss of the loved one. Translating bereavement and memories into words & feelings - all too short within the confines of a 'box' ad. At times, tending to eulogize the person and elevate s/he to the different status.
Ironically, affectation rather than affection would have been the ruling emotion while the deceased was still alive!!
Which is why this one - starkly different, yet light-hearted and celebratory in tone - was a pleasure to read.
Mr. K Vishwanathan, RIP!
