I've got another one to go to today :(
The older you get the more you have to attend. Last year it was 5, the year before 4. This is the first of this year and hopefully the last.
Up until about 5 years ago I think I only had about 4 in total.

Was at one on Friday,

It was a who's who in the Italian mafia of Aberdeen with SPECIAL guests arriving we their sharp suits on it was scarey..

Went back to the pub for a coffee you could sense something was brewing no just the beers..being a coward I am I decided to leave ..

The chap himself was an ex champion boxer whom I have known for 30yrs..

He had a heart of gold and a pure gent..he was in his early 50s his heart just said no more poor lad.

No funerals are good but that one was pretty hard. The wife of the deceased broke down in the middle of a hymn :(
I decided not to go to the wake just now as I would end up a mess.
Will go along about four

Funerals are ok as long as the person in the box is someone you couldn't give two phucks about.

Free steak pie meal then plenty of booze, whats not to like?

I absolutely hate going to funerals.

Had to help carry the coffin once as well, not pleasant.

My Dad and my father in law both had the Humanist service where they talk about the person that's passed away rather than that boring religious pysh when they sing hymns and pray tae phuck knows who.

no offence aj, but i find humanist funerals to be very empty hopeless experiences, i'd much rather hear the words of christ than what jock the coalman thought of my old man.

No disrespect to any faith,

But I think like that but wouldn't like to say religious p...
But I would like a funeral where they talk of the said buc as there's loads to tell..

And I want people to cry but to enjoy meeting up with the people that have given up time to come and say Cheerios to the buc..that would be nice.

I will even take a Hankey into my coffin incase I start crying myself..:D

A funeral should be about the person who has passed away.

a funeral is also about the hope for the soul or spirit of the person, a send off into the great unknown, humanists major on the past because that is all they have.

My auld man's was that as well, my gran organized it. To be honest, his church was the boozer on a Sunday, so anything else would have been a tad hypocritical.

Correct. And that's all you need. You're there to celebrate the life of the person who has passed and making the funeral all about that person is the best send off you can give them. If you want to sing boring hymns that you don't know the words to or say prayers that mean f-all then fair enough.

I prefer a religious funeral myself the talking about the old storys is for after with a few drinks but its up to whoever is passing away or their family how they do their funeral and everyone should respect that who goes whatever way is chosen instead of calling it religious pish
