    One In Particular

    It was my first attendance of a Catholic funeral The priest was a very typical Irish small village priest, had a habitual red face and then he started to talk.  For the first five minutes I thought he was speaking Latin and this was a traditional mass, then I looked round...

    When I was around 8 years old,

    my grandpa died. I was really close to him & loved him immensely. We went to his funeral...all of my cousins were there as well. During the service, one of the men started singing something like "Amazing Grace," but it was in more of an "opera voice." That's what I remember...

    I Try Not to Laugh At Funerals

    It is hard.  If it is someone I was close to then I don't laugh as I am too upset, but if it is someone I didn't know well, I tend to get giggly at funerals and don't know why.  I used to have this girl friend that did the same thing.  She asked me to go...

    In Middle School

    My grandfather died. I had a pretty good relationship with him all and all. He was the only person on that side of the family that I actually, genuinely liked. But what the ****, to be honest, he weirded me out sometimes. At his funeral service, I was sitting by my...

    Don't Think I Am Horrid Please!

    I giggle when I am extremely nervous and I can't make it stop sometimes. Funerals are stressful for me even when I don't know the deceased that well; trying to figure out what to say to the loved ones, or even trying to think of something good to say about some people is...

    I feel like laughing at the fake people - those people that go to funerals for appearances' sake, or the ones that are just there hoping to get something stated in the will. I feel like laughing at those over-dramatic people - the ones that cry like there's no tomorrow, the ones...

    It's Not Always a Bad Thing

    Funerals are times of stress, and in some societies, we feel the need to suppress expressions of grief.  I have been to a funeral where some giggles started in the middle of the room, and they spread like a virus.  Soon, even the widow and family were affected, and the...

    It Happens

    I got the giggles at my dad's friend's funeral. Actually my brother and I kept looking at each other and setting each other off. We really loved the guy, we'd known him as kids. I think it was just because we were sad and uncomfortable.
