A sign of The Times

There are two death notices in today’s Irish Times which begin in identical fashion, as follows:

"RHATIGAN (Dublin) February 7, 2006 (peacefully), at home, after a long illness bravely borne. Brian will be sadly missed by"

And there the two notices digress.

Notice 1 continues: “by his loving wife Odilla. Beloved father of David, Odilla etc etc………”

Notice 2 continues: “by his devoted partner Rachel and their daughters Sophie and Isabelle.”

Lucky man. I wonder who gets the ashes?
