This is a question Funerals II

It's been 7 years since we last asked for your funeral stories and what with Lady Voldemort's coming up, we thought we'd ask again.

The deeply upsetting, the sad and the ones that make you want to hug the world all have a place here on b3ta, tell us about them.

Thanks to Pig Bodine for the suggestion

Family funeral hypocrisy ‘fun’
My family are a very strange group of people, hence why I haven’t had anything to do with them (apart from my grandmother before she died) for a very long time, other than basic contact and only when completely necessary.

My mother had refused to have anything to do with her mother-in-law for nearly 20 years & wouldn’t have her in the house. My father is an only child, so my gm had no other family. This meant that my grandmother spent a lot of time alone as she lived about 80 miles away (I did what I could when I could), including every Christmas alone for 20 years. My father, who has the backbone of a blancmange, went along with this so as not to upset my mother.

When my grandmother died at the age of 95 four years ago I found out after a couple of days that they were planning on my mother reading the eulogy at her cremation.

WTF. There are lots & lots of strange things that have gone on with my family, but this was fucking appalling.

I had gone along with all the other choices, helped my father with the arrangements (it’s a strange thing helping your dad chose a coffin for his mother), but there was no way I was going to allow this to happen. I called my father and politely told him that the hypocrisy of this was unacceptable. I understood he was too upset to speak at the service and said I didn’t mind who else would do it, but it just wasn’t on. In the end we agreed that the vicar would do the eulogy instead.

To this day I cannot believe that bare faced hypocrisy.

Tl;dr – my family are cunts, even when it comes to burying the dead.

Maybe your granny had been a complete bitch to your mum.

That wasn't the case. My mother is just a nasty cunt.

The whole "daddy issues" thing was made up by my gay stalker, self-confessed paedophile and notorious fuckwit Rory Lyon and perpetuated by his partner in twattery, the poverty-stricken, braindead failure Monty Boyce. Oh, and you.

Still, I bet Freud would have had a field day with the three of you.
