My siblings and I recently had a family meeting with our dad to plan his and our mom's funerals. They are not actively dying, but are both in their 80's, so something horrible to do, but glad it's done.
Anyway, love my dad's heart, he was a businessman all of his adult life, and very much likes to be in control and have the final say so. We were discussing what time of day to have the funeral and he kept saying that if it was winter time, he didn't want people to have to be at the cemetary after dark, so the funeral should start by 2 pm at the latest, to give us time for a short graveside service.
I was having to bite my tongue not to say, but Dad, you won't be there! Why do you care?? When I told my sister later she giggled and agreed, Dad probably would have disowned me on the spot!
