Writer's Workshop: My obit in 65 words or less

For this weeks writer's workshop I decided to write my own obituary. Kat stipulated that everyone died at 100 and the real clincher was that we could only use 65 words. Below is my entry (Sorry I'm two words over): 

Beloved Wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. An award-winning author and a renowned scrapbook designer. Often seen with her family and friends who will remember her with a smile on their face, a laugh in their heart. Favorite saying, a Dr. Seuss quote, “Be who you are and say what you mean because those who matter don’t mind and those who mind don’t matter.”

Awesome job! Love the Seuss quote. But did we get 65 words? Somehow I read 45!!! I cheated myself out of 20 words dammit! I love how you won book awards and were a renowned scrapbook designer and lived a long life!
