    Sounds a lot like what i would have said at my ex-father-in-law’s funeral … if i’d bothered to attend.

    JJ is making Kim look better and better by comparison.

    Trudeau is resurrecting characters with whom I’m unfamiliar. I’ve only been reading Doonesbury on a regular basis since GoComics.

    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.

    @Lewreader

    Death is the ultimate cliche.

    You have to give J.J. credit though, gushing from her would be dishonest.

    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”

    I’m going to be cremated when I croak. I’ll have them play Sinatra’s “I did it my way” at the wake followed by “big takeover” by Bad Brains.
