My great grandfather died on monday. He's was about to turn 93 so he had an amazingly long and happy life. Everybody who know's him knows he loved to party, and we have a monsterous family who loves to do just that. The cousins flew in from the south and the whole clan gathered for the funeral. The priest opened the eulogy by saying "You people....are dressed entirely too well.....to be running a meth lab." So we went to a really fancy resturant and drove the staff crazy. Me and one of my uncle were standing by the entrance to the bar and an old woman walked by and asked "Who's the party for? What's all this celebration about?!?!" and we just looked at each other and said. "Well.....our grandfather just died." she looked frightened and quickly walked away.

So I was just wondering what everybody elses family does for funerals and what the think of my family's un-orthodox method. I'd like to think I'm not the only one with a family that has many of the characteristics of a cult and appears to be running a meth lab. Funny funeral stories? Just tell me what you think.

2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again

We gently place our beloved deceased on a bed of the weapons of his slain enemies in his longboat. Then we set it alight and watch it drift off into the horizon.

Uncle Hardrada, I will meet you again in Valhalla.

some families don't grieve like crying and what not, but the partying is to remember the person being remembered during a time they want to be remembered.

we go by the solemn quiet, dont-make-jokes type of deal. i get why you would have a party. if i were to die after a long full life i wouldnt want my family to be miserable but would be nice for them to miss me. i think thats why people do the whole sad, quiet thing so that it shows they are only thinking of the person who is gone and miss them. but id still prefer a party when im gone. (unless i was murdered or killed by cancer)
#13
That actually sounds nice. My family isn't the party type, besides my aunt.

Reading that, I think I will put in my will that when I die I want everyone to gather and get wasted and party.


And to put my corpse in the middle of the room on a golden toilet or something....

I think if you're dead you'll want people to enjoy themselves at your funeral (of course, being dead, you won't be able to tell). So I completely sympaphise with the party thing. At the risk of changing the subject, When I'm dying I want to be frozen in a block of ice holding a bass and left on the north pole.

We kinda had a party when my Grandpa died. More like just the family coming over and drinking and eating y'know.


But regardless, I've never seen my dad that wasted before.

Well see, I have lost family members, (both my grandmother's and one cousin), but they get buried in Mexico where their family members were born so it's kinda expensive for everyone to fly over there. Plus the majority of my family is over there so it's not like no one comes to the funeral.
#22
I was 3 on my grandpas funeral. I didn't understand what was going on. When we were looking at his dead body in his open coffin, my mom didn't want to show me his dead body, for some reason. I didn't understand what was going on.

But it was quite a sad day, I guess.

Edit:

Since my grandpa's funeral was the only funeral I've been to, and I was 3, I can not say I remember how it was.

Yeah I think celebrating someones life is a much better way to send them off than mourning their death. My family tends to do similar things.

That's so awesome of your family, that's what I'd like mine to do, instead of people crying.

But what was the part about the meth lab?

Getting wasted when someone dies is pretty standard practice here in Scotland, Its called a "Wake" the celebrationof ones life through shortening your own

or you could be frozen while alive so when/if global warming goes full throttle, you will be resurrected and be able to finish the sick bass solo you played when you were first frozen.

It is definitely a brilliant way to embrace a loved ones parting.

I've got my grandfather's funeral on Monday, he was in his mid eighties, and died of Ahlzeimer's last Saturday. I have a feeling the occasion will be quite similar to yours TS, as my grandmother has bought tons of booze, and no soft drinks at all. I have a big extended family - 5 aunts and uncles, with about 15 cousins - so it'll be quite a laugh, after the more morbid service.

yea man, who ever doesnt like pantera or think they suck doesnt like metal, end of discussion, they changed the freakin world n made history, so don't be sayin they suck, have respect, same goes for machine head n lamb of god cuz their good too
#33
Every funeral I've been to, there's usually been a party afterwards. Not in disrespect for the dead, just because it's rare to have the whole family in one place.
#35
Almost the same thing happened when my Nan died of cancer, first thing any of us did when she passed away was get completely wankered and have a huge indian...was a wierd day 'cos she'd died at home and her body was still in her bed...

the funeral is all sad and stuff, and then we go back home and have a party. we have fun and talk about whoever bit the dust (memories, stories etc). Then people argue about the will and religion and the family falls into shambles.
