    My grand father was always my favorite growing up. He was dad to me for many years of my young childhood. Just before he turned 65, his doctor told him he was as healthy as a bull with years of life left in him. He had the medical examination because he was approaching retirement...

    My Father Owned a Funeral Home

    Hate It

    The only time I go to a funeral is if I'm dragged there kicking and screaming. The only one I've gone to willingly was my grandpa's, which was last month. I'm still not over him. I don't think I'll ever be. I was 5 when I went to my first funeral. It was my great grandma. It was...

    Never Have, Never Will

    I hope that doesn't sound bad or selfish, but I just can't bring myself to go to a funeral. The whole atmosphere is just too sad and creepy for me. I don't even want people to have a funeral for me. Just put me in the ground, have a little party and that's that.

    Funerals Ruin Memories

    When I was a kid, my grandmother died of MS. When I went to her funeral I saw her in the coffin, and everyone was saying that she looked like she was sleeping. I couldn't disagree more. There was a stillness about her that was completely unnatural. Her chest didn't rise and fall...
