I was born and grew up in Rochester, NY so I still follow what's happening in Rochester even though I have lived in Florida for the last 40 years. Probably every other day I read the on-line version of the Democrat & Chronicle and one of the first section I read is the "Irish Sports Page" (a/k/a the obituaries). I think I got that from my mother who always read the obits first. But, I digress.
When one goes to the D&C obituaries, the left most column is titled Spotlight and following are some of the obits for that day. Why are these obits spotlighted? Are these written better than others? Are the pictures better than others? I'm lost. Can somone help me out?
