Funeral mixture

Funeral mixture
I have been making arrangements for my mother's funeral and have just realised the mix of people in the limo that will follow the coffin, 3 atheists, 1 agnostic, 2 muslims and 1 christian. Not sure what that says about the family, but that's how it works out.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

I echo Brian's words, Zebo.  And that is an interesting family.

The 2 muslim guys are neigbours who visited every day when my mother was house bound, they helped around the house and with shopping, several times they helped when she had a fall and called the ambulance. (her so called "christian" neigbours never set foot in the house) As I live about 85 miles away they were a great help as you can imagine

As a wise man once said "with or without religion you will have good people doing good things........"

Thanks for making his point, again.

Condolences.

That's about the mix I'd expect in the UK.
