She obviously loved the internet too or her daughter does because this is an obituary is made for the web.

A Buffalo area woman's obituary made the rounds after her hatred of Tom Brady was revealed.  Carole Scarsella, who passed away on July 19th, was a cigarette loving Yankees fan who also loved LeBron James.

From The Buffalo News:

Carole Scarsella of Lackawanna passed away recently and her family wanted to make a few things clear in the death notice that appeared in Sunday’s Buffalo News.

But only one of the five things about Carole warranted capital letters. When noting her fandom of the Yankees and LeBron James, the family then included, “She HATED Tom Brady.” Which is not an unreasonable opinion for a sports fan from Western New York, after all.

Her granddaughter, Aggie, noted on Twitter, “I miss her endlessly. But I’m glad she is remembered and the people of Buffalo also share her deep-rooted hatred of Tom Brady.”

The death notice, written by Carole's daughter Norma Milholland, also said that she loved to read, to play slot machines and Facebook games and smoking. “She smoked millions of cigarettes.”

"I can’t imagine what she would say about all the attention she’s getting, but I’m sure she would love the message being passed on!" Aggie said.

You know you've made it when dead people are hating on you.

Tom Brady definitely isn't for everyone.  I assume living in Buffalo that she was a Bills fan and hating the former Patriots quarterback as a fan of the Bills is really easy to do.
