Ulysses Opossum, 57

Mr. Ulysses Opossum was struck on Thursday night on Southall Road just west of his winter residence at the Harpeth River. His wife reflected through tears, “I thought he was grinning and playing dead—like always.” Known as an excellent finder of food and water, he will be missed by all who knew him. He leaves behind 119 sons and daughters and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Opossums for Safe Crossings Society.
