Passed Made Present

is creating obituary education




per month


Passed Made Present introduces readers - especially kids - to those who've lived worthy lives. Lives worth learning about. Lives worth learning from.

Each month, one or two obituaries are presented, along with historical background and connections. Over fifty exemplary people have been honored so far, including the first woman to climb Mount Everest, the man who ended smallpox, and a foster mother to ninety-eight children. They're a remarkable assembly: meet them all at

To provide as diverse a selection as possible, I read obituaries from around the globe. It's a labor of love, but the newspaper subscriptions and website expenses do add up. Please help keep this effort going. Every dollar - even a dollar - helps.

Obituary education: character education with real characters.

Many thanks for your support!
