QO?

Says he died Tuesday so he was already dead by the time I had posted the news he was ill.

@Grim Up North A lot of churches put the "Prayers" section in their bulletins online, usually published weekly or fortnightly and can be downloaded as a PDF. It can be a useful tool, but for DDP purposes you'd have to spend a lot of time sieving through names to find someone notable so probably not worth it. Though sometimes if they have a unique name, they stick out.

Omaha Steaks Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Bruce Simon, died early Wednesday at age 63.

Simon died of natural causes, the company said in a press release.

SC

EDIT - look at this guy - he looks at least 75.  How is that a 63 year old?  He resembled his shrink wrapped meat products.
