    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.

    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.

    Nana Didn't Play Favs

    Funeral Diary The days are passing by swiftly and Saturday will soon be here. The funeral will be Saturday at twelve noon. Many women say that they hate their mother in law, butI loved her. She was a saint. It was her son that drove me crazy at times. I remember the Sunday...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
