Comments: Who Do Ya Hate?

I have a pretty long list of graves that I would like to pee on, some of which I have. This is one of the first times I've ever heard of anyone peeing on folks from the grave.

I believe that funerals should be for the living (or at least the service) and that anybody who needs closure should be able to attend. I guess I just havent met anybody I dislike enough to say I dont want them at my funeral. That, OK, I am still relativly young, and there are alot of jerks out there.

I understand her holding onto him in that manner, but like Web remarked, the funeral is for the living. How does one hold onto hate after death?

Well done to his widow.

If I hated someone enough to not want them at my funeral, chances are they hate me back enough to not even care if I passed away. No problem there.
Besides, I trust my family would have the good sense to discourage anyone that came only to share their drama.

I can't help but wonder if these are his wishes or hers. It doesn't sound like him does it? I went to a funeral once and it did not reflect in any way the gentle man we were paying our respects to. It was a reflection of his crazy daughter and we all left that funeral dazed and confused that this poor man may not rest in peace after all.

What I gather from the description is that there were people that used him at the various companies. Kind of like people who took credit for the person's hard work to advance their own career. Spouses can be very defensive regarding how their husband/wife was treated at work.

We all know people who make others lives a living h3ll at work and think they are doing nothing wrong. Kind of like the people in the recent "Status and Power" study.

In those cases the comment "This is business not personal" doesn't cut it for the spouse and there is no reason to include the untrustworthy in the memorial service.

It is most definitely her and not him. It is her anger. But he wasn't treated poorly at work. He didn't do anything for him to get credit for. He literally did nothing. I'm wondering now what he told his wife. I'm wondering now what he presented himself to be at home to her... 'cuz it sure as heck wasn't reality. It has kind of made us laugh...

Someone asked me if he was a good boss. I said, "He was never an impediment and he was never mean." There is that...
