  1. I don't know about you, but I'd really like of one of the songs from the series played during my sending-off. It sounds morbid on the surface, but I'd like to think it would add a small glimmer of happiness to the attendees. Even those who hate the show with all their life can't deny some of the songs are really happy and upbeat and could cheer everypony up. I'm thinking Pinkie's Smile song as the final one on the list. Would feel so bittersweet - it would be my way of reminding everyone that even though I'm gone they have to pick themselves up and carry on. What song would everypony have played at theirs? (Sorry if this thread upsets anypony or it sounds too morbid.)
  2. In 5 days from now, it will be about 7 months since of my grandfather's passing. He died by a heart-attack at the age of possibly 78 on September 25th, 2016.. Proluge It all started to when I was in school. My teacher's phone rang, and my teacher said my parents came to pick me up early. I went to get my stuff and got to the school office, to where my dad, brother, and mother had been waiting for me. They were silent. Once we got in the van, we went home and my parents had something to say. Once my mom said that my grandfather died, my dad started tearing up. Me and my brother told him it was okay. My mom also told me that we were going to the funeral in North Carolina. And so off we went.. Day one in my hometown A couple hours later, we finally got in North Carolina. Then we made our way to our grandmother's home. We knocked and I was surprised to see a bunch of my family members sitting around her. My grandmother said hi and gave me a pat on the back. A couple minutes later, we got food. And boy did I sure eat a ton of baby Lima beans! I also got to interact with some of my family members. And I got to know my gay ones too. One of them was my uncle, and his LEGS THOUGH. Then my mom said that the funeral was going to be tomorrow. So then at night, my family members went home and I got some sleep.. The saddest day of my life The next day, I woke up to see a bunch of my family members again. I got my morning clothes on and then got me some breakfast. My mom said that a huge bus was going to take us to the funeral home. And in 3 hours, the huge bus arrived. I got to sit with one of my aunts, surprisingly. Then, we finally got to the funeral home. I went in and found out that it was pretty small. I gazed off at the coffee machine. My mom said to get some coffee and meet us in the room, and I did. When I entered, it was so huge. I seen the coffin of my grandfather, I looked and saw him. He was wearing a blue button-up shirt with his Nascar hat on. Then, I looked up and saw a tribute to him. After I looked at that for a couple of minutes, I sat down with my great, great, GREAT aunt something. I talked to her and she told me that I got my cat loving gene from my grandma Linda. (She's another one of my grandmas who is dead.) I told her that I never got to see her and she told me how she died. A couple minutes had flown by and the funeral started, the priest went up and talked. My grandma was tearing up, and after an hour, we finally got to go home. And the next day, before we went home, my grandma waved us goodbye and gave us a really good bag of chips. Then, we got to take our cousin with us back to Ohio. So yeah, that's all. I hope that I get positive feedback. I hope that my grandpa is peacefully in heaven, watching Nascar...
  3. If you aren't listening to a song right now, whatever the last song you listened to was. I approve. Yet ironic.
  4. Since everypony is doing the "What would you do if your favorite pony <insert random stuff here>" kind of thread, I thought I would make this one. So... Yeah. Your favorite pony died and you were invited to say a few words on his/her funeral. What would you say? Would you be able to say it? Would you need a little help from your friends?
  5. In Loving Memory Of Princess Molestia November 24th, 2010 - January 17th, 2014 ?Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to mourn the passing of our beloved monarch. We subjects knew her as Princess. Her followers knew her as Molly. Her family knew her as Tia. For the rest of us, we knew her as Molestia. The pony who raised the sun, took charge of an empire, and enjoyed life to its fullest. Molestia, or as she liked to be referred to at times, "Big Sexy", was one of a kind. She had that adventurous spirit, that honesty with herself, the single minded determination not to let the rest of the world, or even her own duties dictate who she would be. A pony who felt a certain kind of kinship with her subjects. A ruler whose love and adoration would connect with so many in ways that none before her ever did, and perhaps, none ever will. The only thing she didn't have time to give, was the chance to say goodbye. ? It is here in the presence of our great lord and savior, Empress Faust, that we remember Molestia, a time to share our memories of her, and cherish all the time she shared with us, all the fun moments, the bitter struggles that made us all the stronger, and all the life changing experiences in between. If anyone here has any fond memories of "big sexy" , any favorite moments, any memorable works of art about her, any tributes to her memory, before we commit her body to her greatest charge, the sun, speak now, or forever hold your peace. The stand is now yours.
  6. Most of the Canadian bronies will know about what transpired on the week of May 7th-May 14th 2013. A young husband from my town of residence named Tim Bosma was kidnapped on May 6th. He was to sell a hemi to two men and go out for a test drive with them. That was when he was last seen. Police from all over Ontario searched endlessly for him after Sharlene Bosma, his wife, made an emergency call, and after a massive social media campaign began to find Tim. However, on May 14th 2013, Bosma's body was found, burned beyond recognition. What used to be a kidnapping became a homicide. This murder has touched the lives of almost everyone in our region, including me. The shock that such a murder can happen even in the most peaceful of towns rushed through me. All my Facebook friends were in pain and suffering as an innocent man's life was taken in such a cruel manner. Even our local Walmart Supercentre put their flags at half-mast as soon as Tim Bosma's murder was announced. To make matters worse, I saw and shook hands with the man at our local church. From my impressions, he was an amiable person, an average man, and a loving husband. Even his closest friends and family said that he was a jokester, an outgoing person, and also caring. The two men with Tim were found and arrested for first degree murder: Dellen Millard on May 11th, and Mark Smich yesterday. A third man is also being pursued for the case. Like many people in this town, all we care for is justice to be served and that God may guide Sharlene and her 2 year old daughter through this mess. I also hope that the murder will serve as a reminder to all that these terrible events can happen to anyone. Rest in Peace Tim.
  7. So today was Margret Thatcher's funeral, possible one of the most influential and controversial figures in UK politics. She was Britain's first female Prime Minister and also the longest serving one to date. She was well known for not backing down to demands, and although this earned her a lot of respect (again, she was the longest serving PM of Britain to date), it also earned her a lot of hatred from people, especially those living in mining communities that were decimated by the actions of the Conservative government under her control. Now don't get me wrong, I can understand why people may hate her, I really can. I don't know enough to fully understand what she did, but she couldn't have been as bad as some people made out since she was never elected out (she retired). But even then, I know the kind of damage she did to some of these mining communities. What I am angry about though, is the disrespect that people have shown towards her. It's one thing to hate the woman, but another to protest at her funeral. Booing as her coffin was taken down the road, parties thrown in the streets, in one town they burned a straw likenesses of her like it was Bonfire night, and the song from the Wizard of Oz 'Ding dong the witch is dead' reached NUMBER 2 in the charts. What the hell is wrong with some people? Maybe I would take this a little easier if she was still in politics, hell, I probably would have taken it better if she was still alive, but this was the funeral of an old lady. This is supposed to be a time when her family and friends can happily remember and reflect on her life. Are people really this low and disrespectful? And just to make it clear, I am in no way political. I support none of the political parties as of yet because I don't have the vote and I don't trust our current politicians at all. It just makes me sick that so many people participated in these frankly barbaric celebrations. Filthy scumbags. *Rant end*
  8. Hullo, hullo ponimigos, Blackcat here with a brief video over coping with grief via rituals! I wanted to go into more detail with this video, but sadly this video is part of a group project, and I had to leave things for my partners to talk about. If you guys want to watch, and have any questions about anything that you feel didn't really get explained much, i'd love to talk about it with you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhzxHnUe4ug&feature=youtu.be
  9. So this is a slightly depressing topic but, let's face it, at some point, every single one of us is going to die. It's unpleasant to think about but it's a fact. I, however, don't focus on my death. I focus on the party that was my life and want my funeral to be a bit of a party. No black outfits or anything like that. Wear bright colors and celebrate the life I led. This includes the eulogies that will inevitably be read. Keep it up beat. Tell embarrassing good-natured stories. Little things that always made you smile. I know of certain stories I would want people to tell, and things I would want them to say. My question to you all, is what is something you'd like to hear said at your funeral? A funny story that you hold dear? Or just some kind words from an old friend? Personally, I'd like someone to read (or do) this. “You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that all your energ y, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got. And at one point you’d hope that the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him that all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you. And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let her know that all the photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her eyes, that those photons created within her constellations of electromagnetically charged neurons whose energy will go on forever. And the physicist will remind the congregation of how much of all our energy is given off as heat. There may be a few fanning themselves with their programs as he says it. And he will tell them that the warmth that flowed through you in life is still here, still part of all that we are, even as we who mourn continue the heat of our own lives. And you’ll want the physicist to explain to those who loved you that they need not have faith; indeed, they should not have faith. Let them know that they can measure, that scientists have measured precisely the conservation of energy and found it accurate, verifiable and consistent across space and time. You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they’ll be comforted to know your energy’s still around. According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you’re just less orderly. Amen." - Aaron Freeman
