A Book You'll Be Dying to Use

The "Here and Hereafter" book helps people organize their post-mortem affairs before they're actually mortified. According to the New York Daily News article, it has all the basics that the executor usually has to dig around for.

I love to read the obits in your paper and have always appreciated that you faithfully show the cause of death. I am curious, though, why no one seems to have died of prostate cancer since the article about the federal panel questioning the use of screening appeared. That's been several weeks now and, prior to that, my impression is that normally one or two prostate cancer deaths occured most days. Has a cure been found? As a prostate cancer survivor I am most interested.

Interesting question; there may well have been deaths due to prostate cancer but the obits have not yet shown up. We seem to run in strings -- several strokes one day, a lot of COPD the next -- for no particular reason.
In addition, sometimes families are reluctant to be very specific about the particular cancer that caused a person's death although we do try to get it.
