Pick Your Favorite Obits (updated)

Matt Schudel

The Society of Professional Obituary Writers is preparing for its annual gathering next month in Charlotte, N.C.

In the meantime, you can go online and cast your readers' choice votes for the year's top obits. (As far as I know, no Washington Post writers entered the contest this year. Sheer laziness, at least in my case.)

Even though the entries are anonymous -- which all journalism contests should be, in my view -- you can get an idea of how other publications handle their obits.
