I have always liked New Orleans style funerals because they are a send off. I don't want a funeral. If those who loved me want to gather and have a celebration of my life that would be grand, but only if THEY feel the need.
Death is a transition and the person's next step. I do not believe in heaven or hell but do know we do not cease to exist.
It is sad, of course, to lose a loved one. I just like the idea of having the funeral or memorial gathering to be upbeat. This is impossible in some cases, like the loss of a child.
That said, this show was nuts and downright silly!
