DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An attorney has taken out an ad in the obituary section of a Duluth newspaper to let readers know he’s alive and well.
Sixty-three-year-old Robert Kaner says he wants to correct the widespread belief that he died. In fact, it was a 67-year-old man of the same name who had died. Kaner says the two men went to the same law school, are both about the same age, grew up in the same area and are members of the same synagogue.
Kaner told the Duluth News Tribune he started getting so many calls from concerned friends and clients who thought he died that he decided to place the ad. Kaner says he heartened that so many people care about him.
