News Contest Comment

Each story is an interesting and vivid snapshot of the deceased with good use of quotes and anecdote to bring the subject's personality to life and also convey why he or she was valued in the community. For the most part, the writer has avoided the listing of positions and memberships that obituaries sum up and made her subjects briefly "live" again. It is hard to write about someone who has died in a way that is upbeat and positive, but this writer has achieved this.
