Children at Funerals

Children at funerals, and I'm thinking children under 13 or so, are generally bored and don't know what is going on.

It's been a while for me

Funerals - One Mortal's View

Funerals aren’t fun, but they can sure be funny. Before I get going, this piece is in no way meant as any disrespect for the dead, only as disrespect for the living, for those who visit the dead and attend funerals. There, got the disclaimer out of the way so I can get on with the piece. The last... Sign in to see full entry.
