A Fist Fight at a Funeral? Really???
August 25, 2016 8:10pm CST
A few days ago, my church family lost a good friend. He was one of our Sunday School teachers and he was a very kind and positive man. He and his wife were always so sweet together. They would hold hands while singing in church and I loved the way she looked at him with pride and happiness when he stood up to testify. They were always so supportive to each other. They were a great example of what a healthy relationship should be like. We had his funeral today and while the service went well, the burial did not go as planned. I left after the service and didn't go to the burial but I was told that a fist fight took place. Apparently his daughter who only visited him at Christmas (her loss) felt the need to cause a big argument and several people started fighting. I was so furious when I found out. I can't even imagine his wife's heartache and pain after seeing this take place while she's trying to peacefully lay her husband to rest. How selfish and inconsiderate can people get? I hope they at least have a shred of decency left to go and apologize to the family members for their ridiculous behavior...

That is so sad that is something that the wife will think of every time she thinks of her husband I bet. I think of the look of my husband laying in the casket and unconscious in a hospital bed anytime I picture him. I have PTSD from it.

I'm so sorry to hear that. That must be very hard. Have you tried getting a notebook and writing down favorite memories you have of him? Then when you start to think of him you can go through that book and remember the good times...
