Having a childs memorial at a bar, Seriously?!?!
Maybe Im looking at this the wrong way but I think its actually disrespectful. This 4 yr old little girl passed away about 2 wks ago that lives in the same town I Iive in. I have a lot mutual friends w/her parents on FB so I kinda knew what was going on from everyone sharing details and asking for prayers. They had a funeral for her, then a candle light vigil at the town courthouse, and a spagetti dinner. I didnt personally go to to any of these but the uncle of the little girl posted a comment on FB saying that he was disappointed in the funeral bc it was treated more like a rap concert than a childs funeral. I later saw pics and it was sad to see baggy jeans, clubbing shirts, and bandannas everywhere and even people posing on top of cars. Then the little girls father posted a video in memory of his daughter that he personally recorded w/friends playing a song called "swerve, at the same damn time" And its pretty much 4 or 5 cars swerving all over the road hanging the window and they even almost hit an oncoming vehicle. Now tonite he is hosting a memorial at the local bar for her til 2am and surprisingly a lot people put that they were attending. I was disturbed by this but maybe Im just being rediculous since no one else seemed to have a problem w/it. I know everyone deals w/pain differently and maybe this is his way of handling it. But its just nagging at me and I wanted to get it off my chest.
