That's one thing I really love about the Jewish faith. No "viewings", and no days long wait for a funeral.<quoted text>
Mmmm true but my family knows I would hats it and white frankly I don't want yo subject my children or grandchikdrdn yo looking at me laid out...I got the creepy feeling my moms and grammars hands moved..better they remember me alive..Have a memorial if they want..sit around and say nice things in a living room..
Laying out does not shop you tot years from thinking..of let Mr call mom and tell her etc.
(Remember that old Crosby routine..where he puts a tape recorder in the coffin that says to the people..Hi. don't I look like myself)
Anyway this is personal for sure..The thing is. We should all be sure our families know tor sure whet we want.. I got pushed into an open casket for my mom..I bated it and refuse yo go to another funeral..Hopefully those I love know I love them beforehand...and the people I sm closest to..God forbid they go before Mr..Well antlyway. Cry just thinking about it!!
Some that were around two years ago will remember me posting, and saying that my dad was having chest pains, and two days later we buried him, and weeks before that, the same with my mom.
No viewing, we want to remember the person as they WERE alive, healthy and happy, not dead in a coffin.
