Reading Obituaries with a Hidden Reason

Whenever a family member dies,it’s obvious for a financially stable family to place a death announcement script in the local daily newspaper.This can be for some reason to notify the general public this being friends who can only get the info through such an obituary or also notify of any planned fundraising to offset any hospital bill accumulated by the deceased in case of a prolonged sickness.

But then I’ve heard of a few cases where people who have access will make a point of going through the obituaries section with a valid reason known to themselves.

Like in this case,a lady pointed out that she always visited this section looking up for women who have passed on,their background and whether they were married or not.

She knew it was a way of finding a husband but her concentration was on those women who perished through an accident, and not  those who died after a long illness bravely borne since she felt that this was insecure since one could not know the sickness that led to the demise.

She had tried it once and failed but this did not make her loose hope and this time,she got to a beautiful woman who had perished in a road accident,was married and with two daughters.

Since in the obituary,there was the venue of the meeting to arrange for the funeral was written,she made a point of attending the first meeting and she was lucky for there was no form of any introduction so it was easy for her to fit.She pretended to be the woman’s friend and a former colleague in college who learned of he demise from the local daily newspaper.

During the  second meeting,she made all the guests who were there were well served and that’s how she got the attention of the late woman’s husband.They became friends and she could visit them in their family home thus winning the trust of the two daughters.

She even attended the funeral and they continued communicating even after the burial.To cut  the story short,that’s how the woman got married and to live happily ever after.
