What Would People Say?12 Sep 2011 / PE
‘Spartacus’ star Andy Whitfield dies of lymphoma at 39
Whitfield’s wife, Vashti, in a statement called her husband a “beautiful young warrior” who died on a “sunny Sydney morning” in the “arms of his loving wife.”
Never heard of him. Also, his wife’s remarks are a tad self-serving, but they did get me to thinking what people would say in the event of my own untimely demise.
Best case: “He was a pain in the ass but at least he was interesting.”
More likely: “He was a pain in the ass. Once in a great while, he said something interesting. You had to wait for it.”
