Re: Right...... funerals (yours) depressive ? by Little Gumby on 3 August 2007 8:25pm
 
I think the differences here are because everyone sees death so differently. When I was young I lost me Mum and both Grandads in quite quick succession. Their funerals followed all the pomp and circumstance that you get from strict religious affairs.

Given the time that has past since that and another three funerals I have been to in the last couple of years (one of which I had to do a reading) I know how upsetting they can be. Therefore I picked my choices of music based on what I would want people to see and feel, it's the kind of person I am, I don't like pomp and faff.

I can understand how you feel Johnny, that you would prefer something more meaningful, I can also understand how a little bit of the sauce lets your tongue (or fingers in this case!) run wild. But the good thing here is that people are talking about it, something that few people do.

Thanks Little Gumby, at the end of the day, I suppose my wife will decide ( I really hope she survives me, as I don't do grief well and have'nt yet got over my mother's death in 1976 ). Is there a song called 'good riddance' ? I suspect that may be her choice. I love her so much. We married in 1976.

Just listened again to Johnny Cash singing 'Danny Boy'. Almost made me cry. I'm afraid moving a mountain would be easier. Alas.
