I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
Well yesterday I had to attend another funeral. My cousin Tammy Marbury died. She was 26 years old.
I haven't seen her probably in over 20 years. You see she was mentally retarded and when she was very young her parents (Clanton and Genenvive) had to put her in a special home. But then I still thought she would be ok there because she was in 24 hour care. But recently, I'm not sure if it happened, she went brain dead and died. It is not sure how she died and what caused it but I do know that mental retardation does not kill you (maybe I'm wrong). I don't think noone im my family has the balls to ask right now. Maybe as time goes by, when the parents don't grieve as much, then we'll know.
But the funeral was so fake and so cold. Her mother and father are pastors and her mother preached a cermon. Now excuse me, but your daughter is laying in a casket, how can you do something like that? Someone would have to be holding me up and carrying me because I couldn't function if my child was lying there dead. And her cermon had no relation to her daughter's death. My family was just in awe over this. It almost felt like we were in church and that she was gonna ask people if they wanted to accept Christ in their life.
Then Tammy's brother got up to speak (Cameron). He was so nervous and he had his speech wrote out. My family truly believes that she wrote it out for him. Because when he got up there, he looked like he didn't want to do it and when he would pause in between sentences, he would look at her for approval or something. The whole thing was just weird!!! I've never been to a funeral like this.
