Maryanne Posted March 17, 2007 Share Posted March 17, 2007 I somehow got through MaryEllen's funeral. I had mentioned she is my friend of 40 years who had died a courageous battle for 2 1/2 years of brain cancer and never, never complained once after 4 operations and numerous chemo and radiation. She was my hero. There were so many people at the viewing that they were lined up outside the funeral polar all the way around the building. The next day was the sevices. I was kinda upset as the priest that was suppose to reside couldn't and they had another who seemed like this was new to him. He was hindu and I could not understand a word he said. Sorry nothing against the Hindus... What upset me was she was such a wonderful, incredibly brave women who touched so many lives and you could see that by all the people turned out for her. So this is what upsets me. They had no eulogy for her. When I asked her son after the funeral he said the funeral seem to recommend against it... Are you ready, this is the reason... because they are too sad. COULD YOU BELIEVE THIS, this is a funeral you are suppose to be sad!! Also a eurlogy is about the good things people remember. I was livid. I could just picture her waiting for someone to say something about her. You only have one chance to do this. As far as Iam concerned, they blew that hig time. I guess the funeral home had another funeral scheduled and didn't want to take up too much time.. phooey on them!! Anyway she is buried and she is gone. I will never see her or hear her beautiful voice again. Big void in my life without her. Still steaming about the eurolgy.... Am I wrong about this...
