Sweet tribute to loving couple

Even obituaries can be works of great literature, in the right hands. 

Here's an example: Andrew Meacham's touching story "In sickness and in health, to the end," published this week in the Tampa Bay Times.

It tells of a long-married couple who died 16 hours apart in separate health-care institutions, after a last good-bye.
