Yesterday I attended a funeral for my dad's older sister. It was held at an old catholic chapel on the top of a rolling hills in Cochranville, PA.
Some of the songs they sang were quite beautiful and very comforting. One in particular was "Shepherd Me, O God", check it out. It really is haunting. They had the all the congregation sing the refrain and then a woman would sing the middle parts.
Anyway, in general funerals are pretty darn sad and I was just thinking that someday myself or someone I love would be in a casket and the people who loved me would be gathered and crying and well, that is a sad thought. I'm not going to really analyze it anymore than to say that I hope that is a far way away, and that my loved ones gather with me in heaven not long afterwards.

it's also why i hate carnation flowers... they are always in funerals and so they smell like death to me.
