No flowers, fair weather friends or God

No flowers, fair weather friends or God

A Poem by Gee
"

Mum's funeral....family flowers only

"
Like many of her so called friends,
the fair weather, absent ones,
he too never visited,
never lent his ear or comforted her,
so we felt it only right he not come to the funeral either.

Always should be a remembrance of their life, how they lived it and not bowing to how others do it.
Sorry for your loss Gee. A wonderful piece remembering the person that made all you are.
No words can express it better, so I'll shut up now.

Not too long ago, on Facebook, a friend posted a rant about how she is NOT having a memorial service when she dies becuz she doesn't want anyone to come to her funeral if they could not find the time to be part of her life. I commented that I agree wholeheartedly, but why plan the end of your life in response to people who don't care about you? She jumped down my throat. I unfriended her. I do agree that it's totally hypocritical of so many people to cry alligator tears in death when they couldn't even reach out in life! I'm sorry there's so much pain associated with the end of your mum's life. I admire you for being able to express the things that are so crunchy (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Been to three funerals in the last month. I can empathize with this feeling. But I will say of the three one in particular. The car is stretched for 3 miles in the train pulled up to the cemetery. Here was the life touch so many others

This is a powerful punch, Gee. You are right. If people are not present during a lifetime, they need not be hypocritical and come to a funeral. No one wants to see them there. I feel your emotion in this. Lydi**
