    I got a call from a bub that told me a former acquaintance has passed away due to the cancer :(

    The funeral is this Saturday

    I was trying to decided whether or not I was obligated to go, and then I realized that I didn't even have this bub's # saved as a contact in my Blackberry.

    That, and the fact that the service is on a Saturday, leads me to believe I am off the hook :party:

    My list of funerals I'd actually attend is quite small. Such a heinous ritual.

    Open bar would be a game changing factor.

    You go out of respect for the person. If you held him/her in high regard, then you go.

    yeah

    the cool thing is that the thread title is so long that it covers up the star ratings

    so only the gayest of the gay would know that this is a 1 star thread :D

    Funerals are not for the dead, they are for the living.
    family knows that attending a funeral is inconvenient, and that’s why they’ll never forget that you came anyway.

    I made the off-hand comment once I wouldn't dry clean a suit for (a bitchy co-worker's) funeral.

    She died unexpectedly 3 months later.
