41. Write the first sentence of your obituary.

One sentence isn’t much, so here are a few.

He died peacefully in his sleep at the age of <high number> after <high number> wonderful years of loving matrimony, and many years in retirement. His passing came as a surprise, as he had been in good health. He never felt truly at home in the world, but always tried to be kind, patient, and to leave the world better than he found it. Rejected by his birth family because of his sexual orientation, he only felt at ease with his husband and closest friends. He is survived by his husband of <x> years. He was preceded in death by several pets. At his request, there will be no wake, funeral, or memorial service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to civil rights and social justice organizations.
