Wolfram Alpha is good for this kind of stuff. But I actually noticed it on Pandora.

Where O death is your sting?

I've registered to develop an idea about what funerals should be. This woman said it better than me . . . and put up a video too. Thanks, Reddit users, for getting it to the front page.

Her son posted the final entry (her eulogy) on her blog on June 10. She was a comedienne and, to my view, a philosopher of life. She was obviously a great mom too.

I hope to get the chance to meet her someday.
