    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

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

    Funeral Fashions
