My Professional Obituary

My Professional Obituary

On Friday, April 18, 2078 Richard Stephen Allison passed away from exhaustion. He was a great man, and will be missed by many of his associates. Richard will be remembered as a man who was always working on learning new things and improving himself. Throughout his career he gained knowledge that he used effectively to help those around him. He was well liked by his coworkers because of his ability to listen and understand their circumstances. He helped sort out many problems, both personal and professional. He was always a hard worker, willing to put in the time necessary to accomplish his assigned tasks. He was an example to his peers, and we wish we had many more workers like him.

For my ethics final we had to write the above paragraph, what we would like to have said about our professional careers. When I originally started typing it, I put 2088 as my death date, but then I realized that would put me at 105. Even 2078 puts me at 95, and I most likely won’t live that long… even 2068 is a stretch! It made me pause for a while, it’s crazy how short life really is…anyways, if someone’s planning my funeral, now they know what to say!
