Just a number

My friend Dave’s father passed away earlier this week, and the obituary was in today’s Pioneer Press.  I was struck by the URL for the page, http://www.legacy.com/twincities/Obituaries.asp?Page=Lifestory&PersonId=20093003.  It tells a lot.

It says, here’s a lifestory, about someone from the Twin Cities; but in the end, we’re just another number.

Isn’t that sad.

I know to many people that’s not true, and I hope it’s not true about me.
