Vote now! Polls are open for Society of Professional Obituary Writers contest!

Go to the Awards page of the Society of Professional Obituary Writers Web site, click a category, read the obits and vote for your favorites.

The public polling won't affect the outcome of the official awards, which will be decided by SPOW members only. But the people's choice results will be announced at the May 11th awards presentation at the Professional Obituary Writers Workshop at The Oregonian in Portland, Ore.

Good luck to all who entered, and thanks to all who vote.

Even if you don't vote, you'll want to read these wonderful once-in-a-lifetime stories.

Here's the same comment with (hopefully) the correct link:
