    probably like no other in the world.

    • The name of the deceased, where they work is placed in the daily paper, including names of family, and friends
    • The radio stations then make an announcement and it goes like this.
    The funeral of the late Dunwiddat, name of workplace, wife of info-moetry, his work place too. mother of Moonchild, fieldpea..their work place too.:cry:
    Sister of Clyde Coger. his work place too :lol::lol: Not only will the names of husband, and children be mentioned but also some of the relatives.:( Even those who are living in the USA and the UK or whereever they may reside. The funeral is delayed to accommodate those living overseas.

    Then the church where the funeral will take place is mentioned.
    This announcement is mentioned for about three days.

    Then the funeral itself. People dressed to the nines.
    • Then the eulogy..sometimes I am sure if the dead could talk they would say.. stop lying on me:lol:
    • Then the pastor begins his sermon.
    • Then comes the time when the coffin is being escorted out of the church..then you hear the bawling...red eyes:SuN015:. When the coffin is placed in the grave...more bawling. If you are not even related...tears come to your eyes.
    • When the funeral is over then comes the WAKE. If they are children or relatives living overseas, they would visit a couple a days before bringing with them foodstuff too.
    Food and drink.:toast:When my father-in-law died, there was a wake and that was the first time I saw people eating after a funeral. I just could not eat. I always thought that after a funeral, it would be a time of quiet reflection..although this is mentioned in the bulletin, nope...not bout hey..the food is all ready to be served and eaten..Macaroni and cheese, baked chicken, rice and beef stew, all types of salads, cake, icecream and drinks galore.:D

    The dead dun dead and buried and it's time to eat and drink..Lol:lol: Recently I have noticed an added attraction...people are selling drinks in the graveyard after the funeral service. What will they think of next.:thinking:

    It sounds funny, but it's so true! I think when preachers are in cemetary school they are taught to say "he/she gave her self up to the lawd before she passed", as if the preacher was in the room when the person died because they never tell you who told them that.

    A female preacher said this @ my uncle's funeral earlier this year and i know that's a dang lie. :lol:

    Me and my sister had placed him in a nursing home because he wasn't taking care of himself properly. First, we hired a Visiting nurse, but she just confirmed what we already knew. Then, i got a call that he had fallen outside of his building and had to be taken to the hospital. The guy was there and i know because i went to see him, but he checked himself out sometime during the night. lol

    so after that we forced him to move into a nursing home and about a week later, i go to visit him and he's sitting in the cafeteria on his floor where they get fed and i sit down next to him and he leans over, points toward some white old man and says "nephew, i'm gonna F him up". I said unc don't tell me you've already been causing trouble up in here and already have put together your hit list. then he points across the room to some guy in a wheel chair that just rocks back and forth and goes " he used to play for the ny giants and now look at him".

    I'm just giving a small glimpse into my uncles "F U" type of attitude he's lived with his whole life which is why most of my family treated him like an outcast for most of his adult life. And this is the guy this preacher says gave his life over to god and she was looking straight at me when she said knowing i wasn't beliving cause i had that look on my face...:eek:

    my son and i were with him a week before and he said nothing about it to me and my sister was there to see him 2 days before he passed away and he said nothing to her either, so just who was it he told he gave his life to god too that told this preacher this?? He was only there maybe 2 months and hated it though it was a nice facility, but that's just who he was. He didn't like his roomate and told him to his face and the guy hadn't even done anything to him.

    It's a trick that preachers use AT THE EXPENSE OF A FAMILIES DECEASED LOVED ONE'S to try and gain convert's.

    I've heard it at every funeral i've ever attended and sometimes i know the guy in the casket was a well known bastard.. At one funeral we put some dough in the casket as a sign that we knew he was going to have to buy his way into heaven. Before i could get outside the church good, 2 of his female family members ran up to me and grabbed my arm, looking like they were posessed and dang near drooling asking me how much we put in there. They had so little respect for the guy that they were going to rob him of a chance at an after life that they themselves believed in........:eeek:
