How do you define "terrible"? Do you mean which ones caused so much grief you couldn't stop crying? Do you really want us to relive that by posting about it for you? You didn't even disclose your own experience.

I lived above a funeral home for a couple years, I probably have witnessed some winners, and I don't even want to discuss what some people slip into the casket!

A three year old girl, daughter of neighbors and friend of my son who was around five at the time, killed in a car accident. It was a crazy situation, parents had pulled over to the side of the road to show some beautiful views to visiting friends. everyone thought someone else was keeping an eye on her, she slipped out of the car and ran into the road. I've been to many funerals but that was definitely the most tragic

One that I didn't attend, but which I heard about... an older man passed away, who had been very well known locally during his life... for all the wrong reasons. He was apparently quite nasty, and widely despised. Shockingly, there was a huge turnout for his funeral. Packed. Standing room only. And not one tear was shed in the church. So... just take that as a lesson, a small crowd at a funeral isn't necessarily a bad thing... just as long as the mourners are sincere!

My brother's funeral comes to mind. The priest, who I always thought was a pompous shamer, in his remarks said something like, "Well, he tried to be a good man, and we can only hope he is in heaven now." WTF? I thought that's what priests were for--to make sure good Catholics got into heaven. And even if the priest wasn't certain, did he really have to say that?

I was a pall bearer and there were about 25 steps to get to the door of the church.

Family brawl in the parking lot of the funeral home. Biting, hair pulling, broken noses, nasty.
