    [​IMG]remembering those who are no longer with us.

    I've been watching/listening to Aretha Franklin's and John McCain's memorial ceremonies this afternoon.
    I liked Aretha's much better.
    That's how I would like to be remembered.

    I didn’t watch it but I’m sure hers was more a celebration of her life and contributions than a somber memorial.

    Aretha's was definitely more entertaining, but who wants to spend 6-7 hours in Church?????

    Yeah, who’d want to spend that much time celebrating and remembering someone who gave so much?

    Sister Re gave most everyone some happiness. Giving back some respect for a few hours isn’t that big of deal to a whole lot of people who came and waited to see her.

    Detroit done good.

    Looked pretty relaxed to me.

    Lots of people had good things to say about her.

    Your funeral will be shorter (mine, too).

    That's like having a KKK Nazi attending a funeral.
    That's a level of hypocrisy few people in the spotlight would let happen.
    I wonder who made that decision?
