I just found out about ten minutes ago, that a girl I was friends with for about 14 years, who had apparently successfully survived a bout with chemotherapy for breast cancer, had a young daughter, and was only 34, just died. I'm going to the wake Saturday evening. I'm really fucking bummed out about this.

Thanks. I'm really not looking forward to tomorrow, but there's not really much I can do about that.

I just got back from the wake a little while ago, and while it was obviously very sad especially after talking to her immediate family, there was one factor I hadn't even considered. I was mentally preparing myself to see her in a casket (which is what I'm historically used to), but instead I saw an urn. That totally took me by surprise! Nonetheless, it was a pretty emotionally draining day.

I like the cremation. Fuck that being stuffed in the ground and
taking up space. Both my parents were cremated and my wife's
weren't. She never visits their graves. Better that my parents
were scattered and absorbed back into the earth than just clogging
up a coffin and a plot somewhere.

And my sympathies on the loss of your friend.

x2. Fuck getting put in a box. Take whatever useful parts and burn the rest. Then flush the rest. None of this nonsense:

Fudge on you death.

My uncle passed Friday (12/2) at the ripe old age of 96.

My nephew took his own life on Saturday (12/3) - 20 years old. An absolute shock to anyone and everyone that knew him. His dad (my brother) has been shaken to the core. There is no indication as to why he did it.

If you want a huge funeral, die young.

Feh

Your Uncle's son killed himself after his father died?

Awful. Sorry to hear that too.

No, he said his uncle and his nephew. The nephew's father (his brother) is still alive.

Sorry about your uncle... then again, living to 96 calls more a for a celebration than a mourning.

Your nephew on the other hand... not so much. Suicide at 20... ugh... what a selfish ass. I'm sorry, but anybody who kills themselves at 20(who doesn't have some sort of horrid terminal illness) and leaves family behind is probably just a selfish ass.

My little brother's dickhead friend who lived right next door to my parent's house killed himself when he was 18...shotgun to the face... his mother found him. Like your nephew, there was no reason for it... stupid teenager bullshit. It was a supreme act of selfishness that just destroyed his entire family... just tore their hearts out. Little MeMe bird asshole.

His university sent two busloads of students for the prayer service and to the funeral. There were a lot of bad haircuts and ill-fitting dress shirts with crappy neckties. 99% of (male) college students look like dopes to everyone outside the confines of academia. 10 or 15 of his friends spoke at the prayer service. That was kinda nice of them to do and lifted the spirits of his family a bit.

The family was still a complete and total wreck.

Side note - I don't wanna be buried in a suit. My request is to be buried in a black leather vest, eye patch, pirate hat and black boots with some sort of badass sword just in case my skeleton does raise up from the grave one day to run amok on the living. When running amok on the living, a suit and tie isn't gonna be handy at all.

And the Catholic Church no longer views suicide as an unforgivable sin. Something to do with an illogical state of mind in a disturbed person leading them to make poor decisions that seem logical to them at the time because they aren't capable of thinking clearly. Some of their churches don't have kneelers anymore either. The Catholics seem to have gotten soft.

The funeral is over and the recovery process is about to begin. Unfortunately, my brother still has to make the trip to the university to gather his remaining belongings. That'll suck.

This whole process sucked a fat one.

Two things:

1. We buried my grandfather in his over-alls and a flannel shirt. It was awesome.
2. They can't just ship your brother his stuff? That seems like an incredibly simple thing that would save the poor guy a ton of grief.

There's probably a liability/privacy issue when it comes to handling personal belongings. Unfortunately in situations like this material objects are all some people give a shit about.

Probably could but he wants to go and do it himself. Part of the closure process for him.
