It's awful, embarrassing, and downright rude to laugh at a funeral.
But I've done it on purpose.
In fact, when my dad passed, I wrote a funny eulogy to read about him.
Anyone who knew my dad understood his joyous nature and desire
to entertain. He believed in the power of laughter, as much as he
believed in the power of tears and heartfelt hugs.
He loved to make people laugh and found his life's purpose
in letting people know he appreciated them. Nothing made him happier
than making people laugh.
I was guided to tell stories about his brothers and sisters.
Dad could laugh at himself and taught us to do the same.
When his family heard the stories, they were crying tears of happiness for
the brother who knew them well and could make them laugh
even at his funeral.
