    JJ is making Kim look better and better by comparison.

    This is becoming one of those funerals where people are showing up just make sure the person is dead.

    J.J. has come to gloat over her dead mother-in-law and to wound her, as it were, through Michael. Imagine how insufferable she’d be if this were Kim’s funeral.

    Kim always looked better.

    At an age where I attend more funerals than weddings, how come only tired cliches leave my mouth?

    At my great-aunt’s funeral I was viewing the body with an aunt. The aunt said the standard “Doesn’t she look natural?” I replied “No. She would look natural if she were sitting in her arm chair with her binoculars on her lap.” The aunt was rather shocked.

    My family tends to use cremation. If nothing else, it eliminates the trite comments about looking natural… and so far nobody has made any jokes about being burned-out.

    Death is the ultimate cliche.

    You can credibly show respect at a funeral to someone you dislike, or even someone that you have tried to kill in the past. Consider Barzini attending Don Corleone’s funeral. Not respecting your enemies leaves one vulnerable to them, even after they’re dead.

    By the way, Daisy’s death shouldn’t have been a surprise to us. She told us it was coming back on November 17, during the “bedbug” episode.

    I cremated my wife and I shall be cremated for one reason only, except for giving the body to science or dumping the body, it is the cheapest way to go. By the way, if you are good at hiding the body, you can still collect the Social Security checks.

    @Orgelspieler: I want them to play “Light My Fire” at the memorial service after my cremation.

    Or “Hunk -a-Hunk of Burnin’ Love”

    To quote my friend Herb Silverman, head of the Secular Coalition for America, when he gets asked where he thinks he goes when he dies: “I’m going to go where my dear old Jewish mother always wanted me to go: to medical school.”

    Creamation would have been a very good choice here.

    @Larry: In my town, and maybe everywhere, the funeral home notifies Soc Sec Office immediately. Any paperwork someone else does for you is a big help, so don’t complain. Husband cremated, as I will be.
