Analysis of NYT Sample of Covid-19 Obituaries

Obtaining the Data On May 24, 2020, the New York Times published an article called “An Incalcuable Loss” "America is fast approaching a grim milestone in the coronavirus outbreak — each figure here represents one of the nearly 100,000 lives lost so far. But a count reveals only so much. Memories, gathered from obituaries across the country, help us to reckon with what was lost." What I am trying to do today is summarize the 1001 obituaries.
