Monmouth Cranty, Waffle Town's oldest resident, has died at age 103. Foul play is not suspected.
Since Mr. Cranty had no living relatives, and since no friends or colleagues have come forward to arrange his funeral, he will be entombed within his one-room lakeside shack. Entombed along with him will be his doubtless plentiful observations about a changing Waffle Town, none of which he chose to share, all of which are now lost to time.
Gretchen Gharble, age 102, is now Waffle Town's oldest resident. We wish her luck.
