Glad to see you got better. What did you do, touch the hem of Obama’s garment?

Now I'm one of those...

The upside is that you’re still alive.

The downside is that you’re still unqualified to vote in Chicago...

At least you were able to see what some would post when you do kick the bucket.

Darn! I was about to arrange for the Ukranian Army females to march in your memorial parade.

Not really, but I love this photo.

Dear Mrs., Mr., Miss, or Mr. And Mrs. Daneeka: Words cannot express the deep personal grief I experienced when your husband, son, father, or brother was killed, wounded, or reported missing in action.

(A moment's silence and thoughts of Psalm 23 to the actual bereaved family--who is not here at FR)



To the prematurely belated Martin:

It doesn't matter who you're named after, Opus By Proxy is not permitted at FR. I will give you credit for being an early adopter in the area of virtual morbidity.

Nevertheless, and the tight economy notwithstanding, Bogarting another's obituary notice is not considered an honorable way to save a few dollars.

Besides, riding on coattails is a Hillary trademark.

You're better than that.

Fer shame. Fer shame.

Now make like the BeeGees and be stayin' alive, stayin' alive. God Bless you, Sir!

Marty wanted an "upbeat" funeral. Even his widow went with a cheery look:

Are you serious? It's "Mister" in mexican.

Well context would be everything, wouldn’t it?

People seldom use “mister” in a sentence construct the way you did and I had no idea Fierro was Mexican. So you throw in one Spanish word in a sentence about someone whom I have no idea of his nationality and I am supposed to clairvoyantly ascertain that it is Spanish. Apparently he’s not as legendary as you thought.
