Sadly, my work won't let me resolve tinyurl's - guess I'll wait till I get home to look.
Thanks for letting me know (I tested the link and it worked for me).  Try this:

Oh that's great.  You gotta read the whole obituary not just the little parts quoted in the blog.
Yes, I've found that Eastman's obituary picks are always very entertaining.
I live in CT where this guy is from and the obituary was created.  There was an article in the paper today stating that his daughter that wrote it is overwhelmed by the messages that she has gotten and that it has gone viral.  She never meant for that to happen, just wrote it from the heart, trying to just share some of his stories and antics!!  She did a great job, so now he is just as big in death as he was in life, it seems!!

His funeral is today and it is a beautiful, sunny, fall day, so everyone can enjoy it.
I do believe that is a beautiful tribute to a man that was loved by his family!

Joe sounds like he was a hoot.

His last name was so appropriate.  I wonder how his life would have been with the LNAB of Love or Goodness, etc?
