Age Gap

I have an unwritten Micah rule that if I’m reading the paper at work and I turn to the obituaries I have to find the oldest and youngest person listed and read their obituary. I’m allowed to read more but I have to at least read those two. Today there was a 107 year old woman and a 3 year old boy listed. That is by far the largest age gap I have ever seen! I was interested to read both of them, but to my surprise they both had the shortest obituaries listed! It makes me sad to think that someone who was born in 1902 doesn’t even have a proper write up in the paper about them. Oh well, I hope if I lived to 107 someone would have at least a few nice things to say…
