    For a funeral where people may be packing weapons, and hatred runs high.

    Is it an eulogy or a eulogy? That's all I can think of.

    Writer's block sucks. I've opted not to take my younger children, despite the fact they well knew the 22 y.o. boy who died.

    It's a suicide, so blame is running high amongst the kids who loved him. They want to blame someone for his death, and his (admittedly) awful girlfriend is high on the list. She has told people she expects to receive money and is driving around in the boy's car with her convict boyfriend.

    Which of course pisses off all of his younger friends and relatives.

    Those of us who are older really just want the funeral to be peaceful and a loving tribute.

    Not likely to happen. But I pray for the best. I'll be leaving my babies behind 140 miles away, so I can show up the night before, write the eulogy, comfort the grandmother and my son, and help monitor the funeral.

    How hideous is that?

    #1 Why do you have to write a eulogy?

    #2 Why would someone pack a weapon to a funeral?

    funerals and weddings seem to always bring out the best in people.

    You used "an" when you should have used "A" twice now. Be careful when you write it, meaning have it proof-read, (assuming you care, and no I'm not spelling police I'm just looking out).

    Wow, what a predicament. I'm sorry to hear that. I wish you the best. I think it's an eulogy.

    Maybe you should wear a bullet proof vest?
