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...

Old enough to know better
Five or so years ago, my Dad and a friend of his were sat at the back of a church at the funeral of a mutual friend. The door of the church is open, and from outside they hear the bells of another church ringing in a fair imitation of a popular ringtone of the time.

My Dad looks over at his mate and says "It's for you".

His mate takes his mobile out of his pocket, looks at it and says "No, it's for you".

Cue two men in their late 50s collapsing into utter hysteria and having to leave the building.



My Dad died a couple of years later, but this is one of my favourite memories of him.
