Speaking of obits, colour head and shoulder photos are becoming more popular in print media in Ontario.
We first noticed them recently in the Peterborough Examiner and later in the Toronto Sun.
On Saturday, two of the obits in the Toronto Star, Canada's largest daily, were colour.
But we haven't seen any colour among the paid obits in the new and colourful Globe and Mail to date.
Colour does make a difference in the celebration of life and if it is a matter of choice for next of kin, we will probably see more colour in obits down the road.
