Who says "You can't take it with you when you die."?

Apparently some solid American citizens are not letting death interfere with their dying wishes. And they are suffixing their own obituaries with, "In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary!" The Washington Free Beacon reports:

An Arkansas man has requested in his obituary that loved ones do not vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, making him at least the third individual to do so since Clinton launched her campaign in April.
The obituary for Richard Buckman of Beebe, Ark., reads, “In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary,” mirroring text that was included in a recent obituary for a deceased New Jersey woman.
Buckman died on Aug. 22 at the age of 75, three days after news broke that the obituary for 63-year-old Elaine Fyrdrych of Gloucester Township, N.J., advised funeral goers, “Elaine requests, ‘In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary Clinton.’”
Indeed, such requests have become something of a trend. The obituary for a 81-year-old North Carolina man who died the day after Clinton launched her presidential campaign also asked loved ones to refrain from voting for the Democratic presidential candidate.
“The family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016,” the obituary for Larry Darrell Upright read.
Upright’s daughter told ABC News than she had penned the line, explaining, “He was very passionate about politics and probably passed a little of that on, so it was natural for me to think about that.”
So... when the old folks use their obituary to plead against a candidate who calls herself 'Grandma" on Twitter..... it's a telling thing.
