The Batesville Daily Guard is your new favorite newspaper, Walking Dead fans. On Tuesday, the Arkansas publication ran an obituary for the dearly departed character murdered by new baddie Negan on Sunday's Season 7 finale.

Spoilers below, obviously.

On Twitter, the Guard said their obituary for Steven Yeun's character, Glenn Rhee, is "from our opinion column," presumably because they don't have an obituary page specifically dedicated to fictional characters. It praised the man for "delivering pizzas and brightening the world around him until the unthinkable happened—the Walker Apocalypse." He's also admired for his "impeccable moral grounding and logistical wizardry." Our favorite part's the kicker: "In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations of LITERALLY ANYONE WHO CAN HELP THEM DEFEAT NEGAN be made in his memory."

Entertainment Weekly's new magazine cover is a tribute to Glenn; Yeun is reportedly the first solo Asian male cover star in the mag's nearly 27-year history.

We've gotta ask, though: What about Abraham?
