I overhead a colleague saying that her husband ‘doesn’t do funerals’. WTF does that actually mean?
If I didn’t think it was decent and respectful to acknowledge the celebration of life as well as the passing of same, I’d probably ’ opt out' too.
Is it just an excuse to avoid thinking about our own mortality?
Each to his own.
There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:
1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
I should have mentioned that the husband who 'doesn't do funerals' was a very close, long standing friend of the man who died.
I, personally would never go to a funeral if I didn't like or respect the person who died, although I know many people who do.
Yes indeed, each to their own!
