I read this story in the New York Times a few days ago and it still haunts me.
The Lonely Death of George Bell tells about a man who died alone. No one realized he was gone and there was no one to plan his funeral or settle his estate. This story goes thru the saga of what happened to him, what he left behind and who had to deal with all of it. It’s more like a novella than an article but it’s well worth taking the time to read it. I did and can’t forget it!
