Depends what you’re looking for. I think we need more custom funeral homes. Themes. Fandom. What’s that person into? Doctor Who? Murder Mysteries? Collects shrunken heads? Have a theme funeral.
Needs room for both. All of one or the other would be too much. Some people need empathy, not “cheering up”. Others need cheering up. So, why not both?
“Thousands instantly lose faith in God as reports of s demise as they cannot fathom the existence of a God that would do such a horrible thing.”
Thanks for the correction. I’m ignorant american about a lot of stuff. I was a teenager at the time. My Methodist church rented a big hall for the weddings and I was the custodian so I was there to help set up and clean up.
It was my first exposure to Indian food and I loved it. Some was SO HOT to my taste buds. It was amazing.
It was a lot of people. The bride and groom were on thrones. Everybody talked and laughed during the ceremony, then they got carried out and everybody went outside and came back in. It was organized chaos.
as a boy I never saw anything like it before and it was great.
I’ve known people through the years that were inspired by Orson Scott Card’s “Speaker of the Dead” idea. [Enders Game] and had it done for their funerals or people they knew.
This is a summary:
“Speakers research the dead person’s life and give a speech that attempts to speak for them, describing the person’s life as he or she tried to live it. This speech is not an apology, but rather a way to understand the person as a whole, including any flaws or misdeeds.”
