1/2 hour wake....... That's it?!
It will probably be just a standard memorial talk. No memorial rembrances or a burial or anything personal that has the touch of the person and who he was.
I could never quite understand how JW's handle death,. It seems so impersonal, clinical, pat and dry.
I could understand an emphasis to not over grieve. However when one is grieving the resurrection hope is not quite what one wants to hear at that moment.
Although ultimately it is the resurrection hope that matters.

It looks like that 30 minutes is the time that they are allowing to fill the hall?
Hard to say.

When I die, I have directed that there be no "memorial service" at all, and that steel chairs be set up in the crematorium and anybody that wants to watch, the doors be opened occasionally so they can.
Also, that not a word be said.
If I could get away with it, I would have my body put in a double Hefty Trash Bag, and put out on the sidewalk, and Tuesday ... it's the City's problem.
The alternative would be "I don' want no fancy funeral, just one like Ol' King Tut!"
By the way, FN, did you ever know a Brother, one of the annointed, named Tom Banakas?
He was my friend for 30+ years, until he died.

So, whose friend did he become after he died, since your friendship seemed to end? I consider my friendships built for eternity, don't you?
