This is a question Putting the Fun in Funeral

Some deaths come suddenly or too soon and can really hit hard, others seem to be a blessed relief. Similarly, some funerals can be deeply upsetting and sad, others can make you want to hug the world.

Mmm, don't want to bring you down or anything, but tell us your funeral stories...

A friend of mine told me this:

His friend had inhospitably died at a young age. They had been in a band together and had recorded a bit of music. At the funeral his parents announced that they had found a song that their son had made on his computer. The song comes on:

...And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang...

What the parents had found was the acoustic version of a Foo Fighters song that they had somehow mistaken for one of their son's songs ("He was NEVER that good," says my friend).

So there are his all mates, silently pissing themselves with laughter as everyone else tears up at the idea that this brillient young songwriter's life is now gone forever.

My friend says his mate's life had always been comically tragic / tragically comic that way.
