Obituaries: Always Take Two
Nowadays this doesn't happen quite as much, but only a few years ago the newspaper would publish two different death notices for a person. If you read carefully, it's easy to see that each one contains more/different information. And one has a photo while the "twin" does not! And one for each lady does not carry the date of death! Point of this post is this: Do look for a second "obituary" or death notice (or perhaps more than two even) when dealing with newspapers.
