Best Obituary In History?

From the New York Daily News: It's short, to the point and factually correct.
A Swedish wanted a simple, three-word obituary published in a national newspaper upon his death: "I am dead."
Stig Kernell instructed the obituary to be placed by his local funeral home on his death. He died earlier this month.
The 92-year-old was an aerospace historian and transport technician, reports The Local.
According to The Local, his family told Swedish paper Expressen, that the message said all that was needed.
"He was a special man with a lot of humor and a twinkle in his eye … it has helped us to cope with the loss of him, in that he was not scared of death," said his son Lars-Ake Kernell.
