Momma liked me best. It says right here in her obit.

    Nothing like using your mom's obit to air some dirty laundry.

    It must be my northeast bias or southern ignorance - I didn't realize that Branson, Mo. was a vacation hot-spot.

    This is why every newspaper I've worked at requires two family members to sign off on any submitted obit.

    And yes, Branson is very popular with old, lame Midwesterners.

    Sucks but my cousin's family has broken apart and they're in their 50's and 60's as well, and my family is caught in the cross-fire. Hate it.

    They should have called her a beloved aunt.

    This also describes Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Add that place to your list, too, EStreetJoe. ;)
