Welcome to Tales By Tom. This is the second installment of Tom Cagley Sr's short story collections entitled, “Plain and Simple.”
Obituaries: There’s a whole science to what you say in one. To see what the difference was between the ones in our Baton Rouge Advocate and the New York Times, I compared for several weeks. I found some striking ones. Also I wrote my own ---No telling what Jackie will do with it. Told her what I wanted on my tombstone, too ---with my ashes buried beneath or slowly filtered into the Arno in Florence, Italy over a period of months. How painful that will be for her, he said, tongue-in-cheek. Oh, the tombstone: “He loved his family.”
I encourage you to provide feedback on these stories or any of the earlier shorts by email at email@example.com or by voicemail at 1 206 339 5456.
The music is a song titled "Rhapsody" by Andy Guthrie and was supplied Music Alley from Mevio (www.musicalley.com).
See you in two weeks!
