» Funerals II

Don't use musics from concerts at cremations
Back in 2001, for my grandmother funeral, my grandfather set everything up in the next 48hours after she died. Funerary, coffin, crematorium, no religious ceremony, urn, etc.

Everything except from the music played at the cremation. He ask my brother and I to find some old tracks from Yves Montand (Edith : and not Charles Trenet) she loved, and burn (!) a CD to play at the cremation. A quick look at the internet gave us only live performances. Songs were a quite sad, plus the 'live' effect gave some depth that fitted the situation.

All was fine until the doors start to close end the coffin begin to move toward the oven. Sad people, sad faces, tears. The artist concluded a (sad) song, a small blank. Then the crowd that was attending that concert burst into a cheerful round of applause...

Some strange habits
- When a car honks, I always answer back "Pouet !".
- I always leave the doors (inside) slightly open for the cat. Even if I know there is no cat around.
