"liked to attend book burnings. not for any political or social reasons, he just hated anything literary"

What the hell did I just read?
 
2013-05-05 01:46:42 PM
I think this one has it beat:


Harry Weathersby Stamps, ladies' man, foodie, natty dresser, and accomplished traveler, died on Saturday, March 9, 2013.

Harry was locally sourcing his food years before chefs in California starting using cilantro and arugula (both of which he hated). For his signature bacon and tomato sandwich, he procured 100% all white Bunny Bread from Georgia, Blue Plate mayonnaise from New Orleans, Sauer's black pepper from Virginia, home grown tomatoes from outside Oxford, and Tennessee's Benton bacon from his bacon-of-the-month subscription. As a point of pride, he purported to remember every meal he had eaten in his 80 years of life.

The women in his life were numerous. He particularly fancied smart women. He loved his mom Wilma Hartzog (deceased), who with the help of her sisters and cousins in New Hebron reared Harry after his father Walter's death when Harry was 12. He worshipped his older sister Lynn Stamps Garner (deceased), a character in her own right, and her daughter Lynda Lightsey of Hattiesburg. He married his main squeeze Ann Moore, a home economics teacher, almost 50 years ago, with whom they had two girls Amanda Lewis of Dallas, and Alison of Starkville. He taught them to fish, to select a quality hammer, to love nature, and to just be thankful. He took great pride in stocking their tool boxes. One of his regrets was not seeing his girl, Hillary Clinton, elected President.

He had a life-long love affair with deviled eggs, Lane cakes, boiled peanuts, Vienna [Vi-e-na] sausages on saltines, his homemade canned fig preserves, pork chops, turnip greens, and buttermilk served in martini glasses garnished with cornbread.
He excelled at growing camellias, rebuilding houses after hurricanes, rocking, eradicating mole crickets from his front yard, composting pine needles, living within his means, outsmarting squirrels, never losing a game of competitive sickness, and reading any history book he could get his hands on. He loved to use his oversized "old man" remote control, which thankfully survived Hurricane Katrina, to flip between watching The Barefoot Contessa and anything on The History Channel. He took extreme pride in his two grandchildren Harper Lewis (8) and William Stamps Lewis (6) of Dallas for whom he would crow like a rooster on their phone calls. As a former government and sociology professor for Gulf Coast Community College, Harry was thoroughly interested in politics and religion and enjoyed watching politicians act like preachers and preachers act like politicians. He was fond of saying a phrase he coined "I am not running for political office or trying to get married" when he was "speaking the truth." He also took pride in his service during the Korean conflict, serving the rank of corporal--just like Napolean, as he would say.

Harry took fashion cues from no one. His signature every day look was all his: a plain pocketed T-shirt designed by the fashion house Fruit of the Loom, his black-label elastic waist shorts worn above the navel and sold exclusively at the Sam's on Highway 49, and a pair of old school Wallabees (who can even remember where he got those?) that were always paired with a grass-stained MSU baseball cap.
Harry traveled extensively. He only stayed in the finest quality AAA-rated campgrounds, his favorite being Indian Creek outside Cherokee, North Carolina. He always spent the extra money to upgrade to a creek view for his tent. Many years later he purchased a used pop-up camper for his family to travel in style, which spoiled his daughters for life.

He despised phonies, his 1969 Volvo (which he also loved), know-it-all Yankees, Southerners who used the words "veranda" and "porte cochere" to put on airs, eating grape leaves, Law and Order (all franchises), cats, and Martha Stewart. In reverse order. He particularly hated Day Light Saving Time, which he referred to as The Devil's Time. It is not lost on his family that he died the very day that he would have had to spring his clock forward. This can only be viewed as his final protest.

Because of his irrational fear that his family would throw him a golf-themed funeral despite his hatred for the sport, his family will hold a private, family only service free of any type of "theme." Visitation will be held at Bradford-O'Keefe Funeral Home, 15th Street, Gulfport on Monday, March 11, 2013 from 6-8 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (Jeff Davis Campus) for their library. Harry retired as Dean there and was very proud of his friends and the faculty. He taught thousands and thousands of Mississippians during his life. The family would also like to thank the Gulfport Railroad Center dialysis staff who took great care of him and his caretaker Jameka Stribling.
Finally, the family asks that in honor of Harry that you write your Congressman and ask for the repeal of Day Light Saving Time. Harry wanted everyone to get back on the Lord's Time.

This.

"Graham Chapman, co-author of the Parrot Sketch", is no more. He has ceased to be. Bereft of life, he rests in peace. He's kicked the bucket, hopped the twig, bit the dust, snuffed it, breathed his last, and gone to meet the great Head of Light Entertainment in the sky. And I guess that we're all thinking how sad it is that a man of such talent, of such capability for kindness, of such unusual intelligence, should now so suddenly be spirited away at the age of only forty-eight, before he'd achieved many of the things of which he was capable, and before he'd had enough fun.
Well, I feel that I should say: nonsense. Good riddance to him, the freeloading bastard, I hope he fries. And the reason I feel I should say this is he would never forgive me if I didn't, if I threw away this glorious opportunity to shock you all on his behalf. Anything for him, but mindless good taste.  "

I think she and Graham would have gotten along quite well.

No Catholocism involved, but when my Grampa died, we had what I would call a typical Irish wake. Lots of booze, lots of song, lots of drunk hugging/laughing/crying/remembering.

It was less about mourning his passing and more about celebrating his life.

I really like this kind of thinking, ever since I heard Jim Henson's memorial had the same policy.
They sent Jim off singing his favourite songs, and not wearing black. They were celebrating his life, and trying not to be moody about it.

Jon Stewart described an Irish wake well:  I've never been sadder and laughed harder in my life.

When my grandfather died, my grandmother and aunts and uncles came over to our house to sort out arrangements. My mom sent me to the grocery store with $100, and sent my brother to the liquor store with $200.

When my grandmother died, she peppered her personal property list (part of her will) with inside jokes. We all sat around getting drunk and laughing at her notes to each of us.

Also cards for random, mostly unobserved holidays.  Perhaps a Towel Day card on the 25th?   World Sauntering Day is June 19th.

Don't Lag Me Bro: "Anyone wearing black will not be admitted to the memorial. "
I really like this kind of thinking, ever since I heard Jim Henson's memorial had the same policy.
They sent Jim off singing his favourite songs, and not wearing black. They were celebrating his life, and trying not to be moody about it.


I didn't know Henson memorial had that, but I love it.

And would also like to have a beer or tea with the family.  They sound kickass, and she sounds like she raised 'em with an awesome sense of humor about life in general.  And that's an awesome thing to have in this workaday world.

Does it really "slap you across the face"? Or are you feigning outrage over something completely benign so you can get your feathers ruffled and show your superiority over someone else. I can see being bothered by the content of someone's post but to get bent out of shape when someone misspelled a word is reaching for something because you have no arguments or points of your own. Your post proved my point. You added nothing to the conversation and resulted to name calling while trying to appear as you are the superior person. Thank you for your help.

Fabric_Man: I dunno, man. I was just at a funeral that took this approach, and I can tell you it is REALLY HARD to stay on balance in that kind of atmosphere.


I went to one for a cattle guy. It was all pearl buttons, blue jeans and cowboy boots. The plus was it was a military funeral. It was a nice send off. I wanted to sneak one of these on his urn (with his widows blessing). She thought it would be a good idea but also said she would not be responsible for my condition after the Army guys finished with me. This is the card. I also have the stickers.

Pointing out obvious typos or who gives a shait errors on the internet is really the biatchiest form of bullying.
Narrate in a Brian Reagan voice-"OH MY GOD, LOOK AT WHAT THAT GUY MESSED UP THERE!!!! And then look at me cause I figured it out!!!!! Before anyone else!!!! LOOk, did you see? If this was a book, it would have a typo and I would have found it!!!!!"
Its not a book, its the the farking internet. No one normal cares. Suck a bag of dicks.

I don't think the people in my life are sure whether or not to take me seriously, but I want my funeral to be in a large outdoor amphitheater, open casket on a dais at center stage, with a 40-piece orchestra performing Tchaikovsky's "1812" Overture, complete with the cannons and fireworks. When people ask me why, I tell them, "If you attended a funeral like that, would YOU ever forget it?"

I want a giant bonfire, enough ale to keep everyone in bed with the hangover for two days, and a DJ who starts out with ~20 minutes of trance, goes to 90s rock, and eventually when everyone's getting tired and drunk, some nice Celtic music for the end of the bonfire. Closed casket, bury me wherever they spilled the most beer, put a big boulder as my headstone, and plant a tree over the grave.

basemetal: Reminds me of my California side of the family, they don't have funerals per say, they have celebrations.  Much more fun.


Sounds like when my dad passed. He had esophageal cancer that spread so damn quick. When
chemo failed, rather than stay in a hospital, hospice set up a bed for him in his parents' living room
that overlooked the lake (my dad was a big boater and fisherman).

When it looked like the end was near, I Greyhound-ed it up to TN to be with him. His last words on
this earth were, "Well f*ck sh*t!", said when I told him that some friends of his from his school days
were on their way up from Florida to see him.

He died with his friends and family around him, music playing on the stereo and an old Redskins
game from their 80's glory days on the TV.

We all knew he didn't want us crying over his death, so it came as no surprise to us when a few...
interesting...things happened right after he died.

My grandpa went to call hospice to send out someone to pick up my dad. So he picks up the
phone and we hear him say "He's dead...please come pick up the body." there was a pause and
then, "I am SO sorry. I think I have the wrong number."

We all about peed ourselves laughing.

The next day, at the funeral home, we were making the final arrangements. My dad was to be
cremated and beyond what they were going to put in the memorial urn and all of the smaller
urns, my mom wanted some separate so she could visit all of their favorite fishing spots and
spread some of his ashes at each one.

The funeral directory looks at us somberly and says "We can give them to you, but we don't
have a designated container for extra ashes. We can put them in a plastic baggie for you though."

We laughed so hard, I know the funeral director thought we were nuts. The plastic baggie was
a perfect suggestion, as my dad had smoked pot almost daily.

There was no funeral, no ashes interred. There was a memorial about a month after he died
and all of his friends, co-workers and bandmates were there. A good time was had by all, and
that is just the way he would have wanted it.

It might take him a few weeks, but I suspect Lordfortuna could do that. He rarely plays them anymore though...
