Deceased Nevada resident gets her final say

Charlotte McCourt was 84 years old when she died July 8th but that has not stopped her from issuing her final request in her obituary:

CHARLOTTE MCCOURT Charlotte M. Tidwell McCourt, 84, of Pahrump, passed away July 8, 2010, after a long illness. She was born Dec. 25, 1925, in Wellington, Utah, and was a 40-year resident of Nevada. Charlotte held a zest for life and loved serving her family of five children; 20 grandchildren; and 65 great-grandchildren. She had been the wife of Patrick L. McCourt for 67 happy years. Active in her community, she assisted in many political figures' campaign efforts. As an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Charlotte served as a leader in the Relief Society for over 20 years. She and her beloved husband also served a full-time mission in the Cabanatuan Mission in the Phillipines. Charlotte is survived by her husband, Patrick; children, Pat and Nellie McCourt, Dan and Lanny Shea, Bill and Marsha Sortor, David and Sherry d'Hulst, and Tom and Ann McMullin; and many grandchildren. A memorial service was held Saturday, July 10, at the LDS Chapel, 921 E. Wilson, in Pahrump. We believe that Mom would say she was mortified to have taken a large role in the election of Harry Reid to U.S. Congress. Let the record show Charlotte was displeased with his work. Please, in lieu of flowers, vote for another more worthy candidate.

That a girl, Charlotte.

Why are you crowing about what Charlotte "said" and her "final request" when she quite clearly never actually said any of this? Funny to laugh about, but this is just her children putting words in Charlotte's mouth that Charlotte didn't actually say herself. If my kids attribute things to me after I'm dead that I didn't really say, I'm going to head-smack them from beyond the grave. And pretty bogus for Kim to paint this as her "final request".
