A lot of people worry about that. Who would go to your funeral and what not. Who would cry, who would make up an excuse to not go, who would bring flowers…
Would you go to mine? Would you cry? Would you kneel in front of me and tell me everything you never did? Would you say you’re sorry it’s too late and how much you’ve always loved me? Would you care so much about me that you wouldn’t give a da** about who saw you cry? How would you answer their one question, “How did you know her?” How did you know me???
A person shouldn’t wait until a funeral to tell someone else how they know them.
If you’re so worried about what people will say when you’re gone, do something while you’re still here! I think you should know, at your funeral, I would sit in the front row and cry until I ran out of tears. I wouldn’t care who saw me, and if someone asked how I knew you, I would tell them,
“I loved him.”
