You think that shits hard? Last year a co-worker had a heart attack and dropped dead right infront of me. Then I got to see him trying to get revived.

Talk about a life changing experience. I swear, if you ever witness anything like that, you will say this. I felt like i could see the life in him leave. I know that doesnt make much sense but seriously, i felt like i just could see his soul leaving him or some ish.

Yeah, that does suck. Before the funeral, when I got the news, I was kinda saddish, but since we weren't too close, I was feeling more sorry for my mom and his other relatives and debated whether or not to even attend the funeral, but decided that out of respect, I will. I even thought I would go out strong, but man, when you see everything with your own eyes, the crying, the man who you saw a month before lay dead in a coffin in front of your eyes, it broke me and I couldn't help but shed a tear myself.

I've been to 2 funerals in my life. A 29 year old and a 79 year old.


I hate funerals

I have been to one funeral, my friends dad. His Dad was young and a absolute legend and the stories they told about him had the entire attendance in laughter for the most of it - but the funeral couldn't have been anything else but that cause that was him - always telling jokes. I was terrified of going and don't want to go again but because of the atmosphere it was no where near as bad as it could have been. I've heard some funerals are awful experiences.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

I don't think anyone in my family since I've been alive has even had a funeral. My grandma/grandpa/niece/uncle/dad's best friend (I was very close to him too) are the people I can think of off the top of my head who were family or very close to family that have died, and none of them had funerals. All cremations, no "get together" events, just a simple cremation act.

Funny story - my dad's best friend (the one who I said died), was cleaning house once, and his girlfriend's ex-husband's ashes got knocked over by accident, and he swept the ashes outside with a broom instead of trying to gather them up (they had an argument or something). My dad was there with him with like 2 other people. To this day, everyone finds it hilarious including his girlfriend after a lot of time passed (they lived together for like 20 years as BF/GF, they never got married, they were together when he died).

Anywho, my family/close friends tend to take death lightly after it happens, before/during it's like anything else, lots of emotions and stuff, but once it's over we have fun and move on, no funerals or anything (unless requested, but I never seen/hard of one in my family yet), it's a healthy way to handle death.

-------------

As for what I'm doing, I just downed some leftover egg rolls, went fishing this morning caught some trout but didn't keep them, not in the mood for fish eating. They weren't that big anyways. Might go walk on the beach some.

The last funeral I attended was a close friend of mine who killed herself six years ago. I was the only person at the funeral that was not family or a friend of her mother's. Now I'm the only ******* person to take care of her grave because her mother moved away in 2007.

On a lighter note, I'm currently preparing a 90 minute power point presentation on diabetes. Such tedious work.

This is odd. I'm 27, yet I've been to at least 7 funerals in my lifetime. How old are you, Rauno?
