An Extraordinary Life

by FxstsLisa

Surprise! 80 Words or Less Contest Winner 

Dan seemed to have lived an unremarkable life. His obituary read: Dan Jones died at age seventy-five. An accountant, he's survived by his wife and son. He cherished his dog, Blue, and a grey sports car.

At his funeral, an unknown homeless man stood up and spoke. "Dan was a remarkable man, he said. "For over twenty years, he brought us sandwiches to eat in the city park - never missed a day."

A surprise to all who knew Dan.
