How many tears are you worth?

    I tend to think that a good way to measure how much someone cares for you is to guesstimate just to what degree they would carry on at your funeral.

    dead KOOLAID MAN

    I ask this question in jest because I'm not completely sold on my own conviction that a person will go into hysterics only if they love you. I am aware that people express their emotions differently and some withdraw.

    I remember when my step-father died. I loved him a lot (more than she did, but that is another thread). Anyway, I remember thinking at his funeral that I wasn't crying enough. In truth, I hadn't cried a tear. I thought it was odd because I loved him so much and I was deeply hurt he was gone. I think the reason is because, he hadn't passed suddenly, it was something we all knew was coming, he had been ill for several months. Still I was very upset by my not crying. I managed to eventually, cry before the service was over. My mother on the other hand, was classic church lady, she was all over the place with her emotions, could have won an Oscar for her portrayal of the classic bereaved widow. Not to say that any of her actions didn't represent true heart felt emotion, but I remember thinking at the time, that if I died, I'd want my man to carry on a lot like that for me.

    So, for the sake of the interesting comments I'll get to read, those of you with partners and boyfriends, how much do you think your man would carry on at your funeral?? icon_razz.gificon_razz.gif

    LOL, Zimster, you aren't even my man and I'd cry too many tear drops for one heart to be crying, if you croaked.

    If something were to happen to me my boyfriend would be a mess. He tries not to show his emotional side but he has cried on my shoulder a number of times. We once got into an argument. I said I was leaving but I meant the party that we were at. He thought I meant I was leaving him. The tears would not stop rolling down his cheeks. It was then that I realized how much I mean to him (and vice versa).

    Joni Mitchell has heart wrenching song called,"A Case of You". One of the lyrics states,"I could drink a case of you and still be on my feet". This song left a dry lump in my throat, and the tears well every time I hear it.

    I could only hope that I may be fortunate to have someone feel the same about me.

    First, I'm really glad to see GuiltyGear back and posting. We (or at least I) have missed your presence here!

    Now also, I think this might be somewhat cultural. Coming from the North and a Scandinavian family, we're pretty stoic, so although there would be a lot of feelings, I don't know that a lot of tears would be shed in my case. If I were from another culture, I'd probably be bawling my head off all the time.

    I have a theory I sort of try to prove that:
    BIG MEN = BIG HEARTS = BIG SOFTIES
    There's you, there's MickeyT and many others; still counting...

    My husband won't cry at my funeral because he refuses to accept there is a possibility that I might go before him. And I wouldn't cry either because as he lay dieing, he's taking me with him. Seriously though, the both of us would be lost without each other and I'm sure there would be a lot more than tears if either of us is left alone. He's my north, south, east and west...my working week and sunday rest.

    i would make sure I made arrangements for a chorus of wailing hysterical guys to show up, preferably wearing black veils, and make sure they were paid extra if they beat themselves on the chest and banged their heads against the wall. That's love.

    Sounds like my swimming team

    Hey there Guilty one... interesting thread. Not sure what to add, but.....

    First, to lose a loved one, a parent, sibling, partner or anyone close can be a devistating thing. Many are in shock, there are some that haven't ever lost someone so close. Evaluating how one acts at a funeral is hard to analyze. I've seen emotional people who are stoic at a funeral.... and lose it later while other unemotional people become so during the funeral process.

    There isn't a right or a wrong.
