    First you see them for the last time laying

    there in their coffin. Then you put them 6 feet under. RIP to all of those I lost.

    I don't want to go to any more this year.

    How many is one person expected to go to?! This year has already been way to many family members. Loosing loves ones is awful and I can not take going to anymore.

    Of Course I Do

    I think you would need to be pretty warped to enjoy them, no matter if you knew the person or not.But in my strange way of looking at life, I find funerals life-affirming at the same time. Because you realise how short and frail life is, and that every moment should be lived...

    I hate funerals so much.

    I'll never forget some of the stuff the pastor, one of the three that spoke for her, said at my mother's funeral -- he made up so much. They focused on how she was broken. A sinner. Unworthy of being in heaven but how "God was so loving to let her in." I couldn't even listen to...

    I would like to know what twisted individual

    thought up the idea of a wake, the viewing of someone who's passed away. I've been to almost a dozen funerals in my life and still cannot get used to this concept. I reject this "social norm." Why are we sitting around staring at a dead person for hours? We've already mourned...

    I cannot go to a wake

    or funeral anymore without feeling very horny afterwards. Must be a psychological reaction: the opposite of death is sex???

    Funeral Fashions

      I am writing these silly stories to poke fun at funeral traditions, some of which are dated, torturous, and an insult to the deceased. We go through them because we don't want to offend anybody. The truly brave and the truly cowardly avoid funerals altogether. Most people...

    A Great Lady

    My mother in law died a few minutes ago. She'd been sick for many years. My husband and his brothers decided to care for her themselves. It was a valiant effort. I had never seen such devotion, but it wore them out. All of them have stress related problems now.She was a wonderful...

    Being An Usher

    I was in office this week along with another colleague. I was helping him to store a desktop printer on a filing cupboard. As he was already carrying it, I stretched out both my hands so that he could place it on my hands. This printer now on my hands, brought back memories...

    Funerals Are Stupid

    I hate them. I've been to a handful of em. Grandparents, distant relatives, etc. No one in my immediate family has died yet(discounting pets). When I go to a funeral I usually feel apathetic. I'm not sad. I'm not wallowing in my grief. Honestly? I couldn't give a fu-ck about the...

    Nana Didn't Play Favs

    My Aunt Sue's funeral was Friday.

    It was exactly how she would have wanted it. We found a lot of pictures where she wasn't flipping off the camera so that was nice. Her son, Ronnie, is in prison and he arrived in shackles. His hands and feet were cuffed. But he made such an amazing speech. Even I cried like a...

    2 months ago my aunt was told she had 1-3 years

    to live. Yesterday she was told she has 2-8 weeks. I'm so uncomfortable in situations surrounding death. All I can think of is what the funeral will be like. I don't cry. I tried to muster up some tears today when I found out and it was impossible. I don't like to hug. At all...

    I went to my boyfriends dad's funeral yesterday.

    His dad was way to young and passed away of cancer. My bf is 19 and I'm 16. It broke my heart to see his family so broken hearted. I hate funerals so much.

    If I can help it I don't go to funerals. I don't even want a funeral myself and in fact, if I die tomorrow Silver01ta gets custody of my ashes. He can dump me in a trashcan for all I care.

    Emotionless Observations.

    Am I emotionless? Perhaps. When someone dies would I cry? Would I cover my eyes, Would I just simply lie? Lie to myself without a tear, desperately wishing they still were here. Death to me. Is an observation you see. An Idea under glass. Tears, paint my cheek sometimes. A...
