Death at a Funeral

 

 

MY FATHER WAS AN EXCEPTIONAL MAN!

He may not have been a perfect man but he was a good man. And he loved us.

All I wanted to do today was to give him a dignified send-off, is that really so much to ask?

So, maybe, maybe he had some things he liked to do. Life isn't simple, it's complicated.

We're all just thrown in here together in a world full of chaos and confusion, a world full of questions and no answers, death always lingering around the corner.

We do our best, we can only do our best, my dad did his best.

He always tried to tell me that you have to go with what you want in life because you never know how long you're gonna be here.

And whether you succeed or you fail, the most important thing is to have tried.

A parent can only guide you in the right direction, in the end you have to learn for yourself, you have to grow up yourself.

So when you all leave here today, I would like you to remember my father for he who he really was, a decent, loving man.

If only we could be as giving and as generous and as... understanding as my father was, then the world would be a far better place.
