From this morning’s obituaries in the Greenville News…
- Shular "Tom" Dee Burrell
- Charles "Louie" Homer Carlton
- Katherine "Kay" Mellom
- Gladys Inez "Nan" Parkins
- Willie "Pie Face" Priestly
I can understand wanting to include the dearly departed’s nickname in the obituary. After all, the idea is to remember them as they were known in life. Tom, Louie, Kay and Nan seem perfectly fine. However, I have to worry that even in death one could not escape the appellation of "Pie Face."
