Kirstin Gillibrand is really laughing it up at the funeral. Unfortunate snap of her.

Why can't people laugh at funerals? It's the fake sadness that's far more disturbing.

Yep, laughter at funerals is good medicine. Thus the humor invoked by the speakers.

He was 94; I can smile at that run.

Does anyone remember an episode on the Mary Tyler Moore show where she gets indignant at the news crew for laughing about someone before his funeral? But when she attends the actual funeral, she can’t stop laughing herself. There’s a lesson there somewhere.

That's why wakes are great. When my mother passed away we had a memorial service for her which mostly consisted of my brother and I telling stories about her life, including mostly uplifting and funny stories that got the audience smiling and laughing. A number of the old folks at that event came up and told us later that that's how they wanted their eventual memorials to be.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

45 looked half asleep when he didn’t have his serious grownup face on.

Agree. When my father passed away, I told the room about the time 14 year old me told my father to "hit me like a man" instead of spanking me.

My brothers pulled me off the floor. I had forgotten he used to be boxer.

The room was laughing, I think, my eyes were kinda watery...
