Death Comes to All, But Louder for Some

Last week was a busy one for a couple of dead people. Both Aretha Franklin and John McCain attended their own over-the-top funerals, each having lain in state for several days while the mourning masses trudged by their caskets to say goodbye, even though most of them had never even said hello to either one of them while they were alive. 

Former president Bill Clinton and presidential loser Hillary were at Aretha's funeral, hanging out with their fellow African-Americans. (Remember, Bill was deemed our "first black president" and Hillary confessed to always carrying hot sauce in her purse.) Barack Obama, Joe Biden and every other person in politics who wasn't Sarah Palin or Donald Trump were at McCain's funeral, which was surely a much less exciting event even though he was a True Military Hero. Joe Biden, a Democrat who is considering running for president in 2020, said that he loved McCain (a Republican) and trusted him with his life. (Surely that got him a few votes from both sides of the aisle.

Aretha's funeral came off like a full-blown TV special only without any commercials, with stars like Jennifer Hudson, Smokey Robinson, Ariana Grande and  Stevie Wonder belting out tunes to honor the deceased Queen of Soul. I know this for a fact since one of my dearest friends was also a friend of Aretha's and he was in attendance, posting many of the musical numbers live on his Instagram account. It was quite a scene. Personally I thought it was a bit too much, but my husband reminded me that she was, after all, a Queen.

It's funny how we all come into the world the same way but leave it so differently. I'm hoping to sneak out a side entrance with nobody noticing.
