I wish I'd had the balls to do that for my grandmother.  I simply spit on her grave after the funeral instead.

A friend of mine was duped out of a huge inheritance (from his birth family) by his stepfather.  He told his stepfather he plans to cremate him and pour his ashes into the septic tank.  He WILL do it.

Whats heroic about libeling the dead?

I would venture that the apples don't fall very far from the tree.  Her children are spiteful enough to pay for a nasty obituary, but can't be bothered to proofread their drivel.

Maybe the kids aren't abusive, but they aren't heroes.

It's only libel if it isn't true.

You have no idea what kind of terror a parent can inflict on a child.

Yeah, but I won't give a shiat. I plan to remain in death as I am in life - unfeeling, uncaring, and cold.

I'm guessing not.

A search of Marianne's name suggests that perhaps she is the same Nevada-based Marianne Reddick who, in 1970, testified before the Nevada Equal Rights Commission that the employment agency she ran printed "White Only" on certain referrals so that black people would not mistakenly apply for jobs where they were not welcome.

Assuming she's a real person. There's no other readily available listing for a "Marianne Reddick" in Nevada, so this could be totally bogus.

Let me give anyone who needs it some sage advice on dealing with crazy/abusive relatives:

1) REMOVE THEM FROM YOUR LIFE COMPLETELY.

Don't call, don't follow them on Facebook, don't ask other people how they are doing.  They are now gone and will stay that way.  Forever.

And when the abusers do finally die, you'll hear about it probably years after the fact, and you won't care because they have been out of your life so long it simply doesn't matter.

What these people did isn't really closure, it's just spiteful revenge on someone who'll never know the difference.
 
2013-09-10 11:11:36 PM
Well, I guess it's cathartic, but it's no skin off the dead person's back. An angry obituary is kind of hollow.

2013-09-10 11:11:48 PM
I am all about respecting my elders but even assholes grow old. Thankfully none of my family led me to write this obit, but many have farked up families. This might have been therapeutic to just goddamn say it once the evil biatch was gone. No harm to me or you, and they got it off their chest, with no illusions of an angel passed. They can move on and up.

That's great advice. It only becomes hard when you're the only person in the family that was terrorized by them.

Huh. You too?

I didn't even realize it was an option at the time, but I wouldn't have wasted the money even acknowledging her passing. I just remember that she died alone, and that she was such a flaming biatch her whole life not one of her 5 daughters showed up to claim her body.

Think bill collectors are bad? Coroners are worse...

BTW, if anyone's actually listening to SpdrJay, this is actually a core Scientology dogma and practice.

It's called Disconnection, and it attempts to separate an initiate from people that care about him in order to prevent the "bad" influence of those people on him.

I think the key part is "crazy/abusive." No one is advocating cutting ties with a family member for their religious or political leanings (I don't think)

One day at work, I was talking about buying a case of Milwaukee's Best Ice, drinking it, at pissing on my sister's grave when she died. A coworker chimed in saying that 'when my mother dies, I'm going to flush her ashes down the toilet so she can swim around with all the other turds. But not at my house. I'm gonna do it someplace real special, like Taco Bell.'s.pixogs.com

Yeah, cutting off the assholes is not Scientologist Disconnection.

However it is true, the Scientologists I know get called off to (very expensive) conferences on random dates like Thanksgiving.

CSS time:

My boyfriend's father was an abusive prick to him when he was a child; he beat him with extension cords with the plug end striking his skin, to the point where are are scars all over his back, the backs of his arms and legs, his ass....it's horrific.  I've met the piece of shiat a few times, and to say he's a piece of shiat is really an insult to feces.  We go up to New York over the holidays to visit his family, and we avoid him like the plague, as much as we can.

When his father dies, rather than go to the funeral, we're going to have a nice dinner at home, crack open a bottle of bubbly, and toast to the end of his nightmares, and the beginning of the rest of his life full of decent nights' sleep.  I want that more than anything.  He'll wake up some nights screaming, shaking in a cold sweat, and there's not a farking thing I can do to help him.  I hate feeling that way.  He's been to doctors, been on medication (though he loathes taking medication of any kind, even Advil), and none of it has helped.  I truly believe that diseased taint finally kicking the bucket is what needs to happen, if only to act as an exorcism of some kind.  Adam (that's my boyfriend) is 42 years old...if he's got another 50 years in him let's say, I don't want to spend a total of 63 years (we've been together 13) listening to him crying at night.  I would never leave him, but he deserves peace at some point.

I can understand the impulse to write an obit like this. In my experience truly nasty people have a tendency to never admit they did anything wrong and to make themselves the victim when facing the consequences of their bad behavior.

This lady probably made it a full time job to complain about her 6 awful children who never visit her. I know everyone likes to feel sorry for the old lady in the nursing home who no one visits, but if no one in a person's family wants anything to do with them there is usually a reason.

The nasty old still living biatch in my family loves to use social workers to guilt her children into visiting and calling so that she can further the emotional abuse she began when they were young, back when she could still physically abuse them.

They must have gotten so much satisfaction writing that obit and finally getting the last word.

It's also something psychologists tell victims to do. The problem with certain mental illnesses is they fool themselves into thinking they are caring parents, or partners, or whatever, and actually believe it. Even if they are wildly abusive, they disassociate from that. They can only see themselves as perfect.

There is no way to reason with them. Psychologists won't even work with them. The only way you can live a healthy life is to break all contact.
