A paid obituary for a Houston-area man who died of cancer recently urged mourners to, in lieu of flowers, "please make a donation to ANYONE running against" President Barack Obama.

James Harrison of The Woodlands died Feb. 27 at the age of 68.

The obituary approved by his family also suggested donations to the American Cancer Society as an alternative.

Rundlof said Harrison wrote the appeal for donations to Obama opponents himself before he died.
