Henry Lee, a veteran journalist on the popular US Daily News newspaper left behind his own obituary when he died, aged 82, AP writes from New York.

A file on Lee in the newspaper's library contained two pages of material and a note: 'To the Lucky Dog Who Gets This: As an old obit man myself, I just couldn't resist the temptation to burden you as much as possible with all the trivia of my life. Be of good heart. It will boil nicely into a few paragraphs. Fraternally, Henry Lee.'
