Obits 4 Fun

Herman Johnson floated into the state of Nirvana on Saturday. Forty years ago, Mr. Johnson, left the family multi-million-dollar business, to pursue a life of enlightenment in Eureka, California. Mr. Johnson was well known in town as a herbalist, musician, and Reiki master. He often preached on street corners for change. In later years, he lamented he should have moved to Belize. "That place has wild energy."

Writing Tip

Read sentences and evaluate weak modifiers. In most cases deleting them will not change the meaning of the sentence. A short list of weak modifiers are: almost, actually, very, quite, really, just, truly, seeming to be, even, certainly, so, exactly, anyway, such, definitely, some, few, a little, rather, usually, probably, perhaps, sort of, fairly, somewhat.
