      It looks like anal fistula (not sure what the first word is), partial bowel obstruction, and possibly (the first diagnosis at the top of the certificate) generalized peritonitis. I was a nurse for 40 years but I don't know what that "V' word before rectal fistula is. A miserable and painful death, poor guy. Judith

      That's a good point. However, this specific case is not as simple as
      bowel obstruction.
      I'm hoping that someone else is better at decoding a doctor's
      handwriting than I am.

          I have began an Obit WIKI at my job at a local library. I enter the obits I find in my city and I always list the cause of death unless it is a suicide. Our database is from 1908 to present and I will have job security forever just entering them all. LOL I have several databases I use, plus all the printed and filed obits we have from all those years that I continue to add to as well. I try to be a sensitive as I can because I know that if people read them, they do not want gore. I also have several pages of medical terms for our Genealogy Collection. I will check and see what this means if it says. Have a blessed Day, Judy
