Haunted funeral?

« previous post | next post »

It took me three readings the other day to decipher the intended meaning of this headline in an advice column question: SHOULD I REVEAL HOW MY SISTER-IN-LAW HURT ME AT HER FUNERAL? Amy, in her Washington Post column Ask Amy (5/25/22), advised the question-poser to resist the urge to denounce the deceased when mourners were invited during the funeral to share reminiscences about the dear departed.

    "Ask Amy"'s home publication is actually the Chicago Tribune, which used the more comprehensible, "Man wants to report long-ago sexual exploitation," as the hed for that day's syndicated column.

    "Insomnia can be common after the loss of a loved one, even years or decades after the death, if they have not gone through the grieving process." (for years this was in the Wikipedia article on insomnia, e.g. any revision from 2009)

    I'd sleep better if my deceased friends weren't putting off grieving?
