May someone in your family’s writing make your life seem as amazing as Harry Stamps does in this obituary written by his daughter. The obituary of the deviled-egg loving, day-light savings time hating man has gone viral. Why? This light-hearted obituary does not only honour his memory, it reminds us to celebrate the lives of ones we’ve lost. Read part of the obituary below:
Harry Weathersby Stamps, ladies’ man, foodie, natty dresser, and accomplished traveler, died on Saturday, March 9, 2013.
Harry was locally sourcing his food years before chefs in California starting using cilantro and arugula (both of which he hated). For his signature bacon and tomato sandwich, he procured 100% all white Bunny Bread from Georgia, Blue Plate mayonnaise from New Orleans, Sauer’s black pepper from Virginia, home grown tomatoes from outside Oxford, and Tennessee’s Benton bacon from his bacon-of-the-month subscription. As a point of pride, he purported to remember every meal he had eaten in his 80 years of life.
