    Default funeral etiquette

    now if you are on the highway and there are a bunch of cars following a hearse what is your proper eitquette. What would you do if you had to get off the highway but you couldnt because you would have to cut in between the cars?

    Does this really happen?
    I thought funeral homes were always near the cemetary.

    I would imagine that they could. The ones I've seen have had a police escort as well.

    Processions can be huge and it's rather expensive to have a funeral home escort, and even more expensive for the local city police department. Appropriate ettiquite is to stay out of the procession but if necessary to exit freeway give plenty of time to signal and merge for your exit. Just remember to be compassionate towards the grieving family & friends of the deceased participating in the procession.

    Also remember that sometimes processions do not have an escort...

    Anyone ever taken a camera to a funeral? I went to school with a guy who took pictures at our friend's funerals. I thought it was tacky.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I lived next door to a cemetery for ten years. I'm dying to hear the podcast. Is it a play-by-play?

    At my grandma's funeral, both my brother and my aunt (her daughter) took a camera and took pictures of the open casket. I was like, "damn, you guys are my family?" Sheeeiiit.

    Last year my friend was home for Christmas and his family were all opening their gifts, and his Dad opened a gift which he had received from his sister (my friend's aunt), and it was a framed photograph of their dead mother, lying in her casket. He burst into tears and left the room.

    Worst Christmas present ever.

    Open casket funerals can fuck you up. Especially if you're a kid.

    When my husband's father died, his aunt got right up next to him to get close up shots as they carried the casket to the grave sight. It was horrific and unsettling.

    My husband and I laugh about it often. What else can you do?

    I'd like to listen to "a slow dance" by Explosions In The Sky at a funeral... but that would be kind of obnoxious with the white ear phone wires hanging over a black suit.

    I'd totally be the guy everyone asks amongst themselves, "so, who's the douchebag with the ipod?"

    I listened to "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" on a walkman at my grandpa's funeral. It was oddly poignant.

    i have been that tacky person a couple of times. A few years ago a friend of mine passed away and his funeral was on a boat out of Long Beach. Some of my freinds were not happy with it at the time, but have since embraced the pictures (although some still refuse to even look at them). The first friends at that funeral to come over and see the slide show, cried; but they were happy a last gathering of friends for Griffin was captured.

    The other time was at my friend's father's funeral. i'm the guy in our group that takes the pictures. Before taking any, i approached my friend and asked him if he wanted me to. He did. Some are sad. Some are funny. If you were part of the ceremony, i think it evokes emotion. Very few people see these pictures.

    In all these pictures, none are of the body. They are of the event and the people there. i have heard the tacky thing, but think the pictures are beautiful (at least the good ones).
