    I think this post brings up the interesting effect of obituaries as history lessons. There are always times we don’t become aware of someone whose influence peaked before our time, and it’s not until they die that we learn more about their impact. This might explain the battle over the degree to which eulogies are allowed to attack the person’s influence: obituaries are towards the beginning of how history will remember that person and their work.
