German Man Pens Obituary as Moving Notice

German Man Pens Obituary as Moving Notice

Karl Albrecht garnered national media attention last week after changing his new address to six feet under. The 88-year-old Albrecht, who passed away last month, wrote his own obituary in the fashion of a moving notice. He invited family to a celebration at his new place—a cemetery in Hamburg, Germany.

The announcement, featured in the Hamburger Abendblatt, stated, "I have moved house. My new address: Olhsdorf-Ruhewald cemetery, plot Bx 65/28C." Albrecht, who had been ill his entire life, asked his family to have the notice published. What a sense of humor on this guy.
