A happy person

Alan Jacobs today:
I’ve been listening to the music for viol consort written by a 17th-century English composer named John Jenkins. After his death, a friend wrote,
he was certainly a happy person, …of an easy temper, superior in his profession, well accepted by all, knew no want, saw himself outrun by the world, and having lived a good Christian, died in peace.
This is the obituary I aspire to.
