They're stepping out with their "goomahs"...they shoot their wad sthen have the balls to say their wife was better in the sack. Then they'll go home and beat the living shit out of their wives for ruining the lasagna.

You forgot to mention that "Tony, went home to be with the Lord" and "He peacefully went to the Lord's loving arms surrounded by his loving family".

That's how you can tell the family has class. Wakes are for the lowlifes.
What?? Really, Wakes are for the lowlifes??? You make me laugh. I'm assuming you were making a joke. You are apparently very young. Keep your youth as long as you can...or is it immaturity?

And all the idiots who put memorials in the paper, like its going to reincarnate your loved one? Or you love your deceased one more by paying for a ridiculous memorial or a three day thank you post? Seriously?

Never knew it was a bad thing to be proud of someones accomplishments throughout their life...providing the info isn't total bs.

I am waiting for the day someone has what an avid topix user they were posted in their obit, if I miss it please someone let me know!

The thing is dude, there are never any accomplishments listed. It's all subjective drivel about how much of a saint the deceased was--and if you knew him you'd know it was a pack of lies. Why lie in an obit? Play it straight.

Wakes are just another money-making scheme for funeral homes and filled with over-the-top FAKE AS HELL displays of sadness and grief.
Obituary

Salvatore "Sal" "Big Sal" Marantino passed into the Lord's graceful and loving arms on Saturday May 6th. He loved taking his kids to the Salumeria and telling them about how they make the sausages. He was always interested in new things and had a "zest for life". Whenever he would see someone on the street, he'd ask about their wife and kids. His happiness made everyone around him happy. He graduated from Proctor High School and then went to work for the Scarfallo Brothers meatpacking business where he would always joke "Time to make the doughnuts" when he'd leave the house in the morning. He loved the Sunday dinners with his family when his sister Dina would brings over the greens and he'd eat the whole plate and leave nothing left for the rest of the family.

It could also mean that the person was not the saintly ginny that the obit makes him out to be. Last month a former Utica post office employee died and he was said by many to be the biggest thief in the place, constantly stealing supplies and doing a fair amt. of shoplifting in Utica. If the family was to have calling hours there might be some people there that would tell the family what the deceased was really like. They won't even post where the plot will be for fear of some people pissing on his grave. The former Utica postmaster had no calling hours either. He was despised by many for the sh*t he pulled

Or the family just doesn't feel like hugging complete strangers and trying to make conversation with them when the line gets backed up.

Tony was employed by the Utica Fire Department, the Utica Police Department, the Utica DPW, and most recently, as a special assistant to the last several mayors, all of whom were his relatives.

Spot on! The Italians I work with obsess over the obits. They trot off to calling hours for relatives of people they havent seen since second grade. Unbelievable and so fake. It's also an incredible burden on the deceased's family.
Take ur cues from the Irish ..... stay home and allow the family time to grieve.

Remember, if you don't go to their calling hours, they will not come to yours.

This thread is spot on. Self important Italians with obits that are unidentifiable when you compare their lives to what is published.

Funny thing is, they just don't get it. Stop embarrassing the departed and your family. Or tell the truth (yeah, right).
