Promising Twenty-Three Year Old’s Life Cut Short

Miss Kinda Indecisive died unexpectedly in her closet at the age of twenty-three.

Miss Kinda Indecisive is survived by her relatives, Slightly Hesitating, Somewhat Doubtful, Sporadically Faltering, Sorta Indefinite, and Rather Unclear. She is preceded in death by Absolutely Definite.

Miss Indecisive was born in Texarkana to Always Indecisive and Never Decisive. She holds an MA in General Studies. She never married. She would have met her soul mate on a blind date, but she could not find the perfect thing to wear. She would have been selected as an award-winning author, but she kept ripping the pages out of her Moleskine. She would have moved away to California, but it never felt like the right time.

A funeral is not yet scheduled. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Miss Indecisive’s life. Flowers and condolences may be sent to her parents.
