A Good #Obituary – A poem by Kempton Lam – Inspired by Mr. #JerryStiller (92) (1927-2020)

#MyManagerHadRetired #IWasCloseTo70YearsOld #NeverGiveUp
Goodbye Mr. Jerry Stiller (92) (1927-2020).

A Good #Obituary – A poem by Kempton Lam – (version 2.0) (original Tweet thread version 1.0)

A good #Obituary is like a good #DryRun for us the living to learn more about a life well lived.

A good #Obituary is a good #ThoughtExperiment (#假想實驗) to help us to try to find out the important things in our own lives from the less than important stuff.

A good #Obituary is a good ending that help us think carefully how better to tell the stories of our own repeated meetings with Triumphs and Disasters and treat these impostors just the same.

A good #Obituary is a good short 3 minutes read to help us briefly reflect and maybe better live our own lives.

Goodbye & thank you Jerry for your 92 years of laughters & services to try to make our world a better place than the one you found in 1927, in the only ways you could!
