Hilarious! (I know it wasn't funny then). Well-written. I hope restitutions were made with Sarah Collins after.

Cheers!

Funny situation! Small town newspapers have to deal with lots of interesting characters.

A few things struck me as unlikely--the obit was odd if the writer thought he/she was writing about a person, and the woman's reaction seemed a bit over the top. A few tweaks might polish this up a bit.

I've started a thread in the message boards specifically for Beginner and Intermediate writers, and I'd love to have you stop by. http://www.faithwriters.com/Boards/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=67

Love your narrator's patience and humor!

HaHa! I love how the main character just sets the phone down and lets the lady go on and on. That newspaper made a major oops!
Talk about a mistake! I had fun reading this.

What a humorous read, though devastating for the poor lady who was indeed alive. I had to chuckle as I read this because it does really happen. Good job!
