Wow, this was ten years ago? This is a hoot!
I just joined in July 2019. So, have you written down memories for your son and daughter? I wrote columns for three papers for almost 20 years. I've put aside the ones I wrote about my kids and grandkids, but do need to make them more accessible to them.

    Oh...My Eulogy contest...So appreciative that you chose this one to read. As I re-read it too...brain fog for sure after ten years...I laughed. My son, Matthew (after a long hiatus) has completed filming a romantic comedy and it is in production at the moment. If I survive the inevitable and my eulogy isn't read before May 1st, I will have the pleasure to stand with my son as we attend his Movie Premiere and his dreams are fulfilled. Thank you so very much. Smiles and hugs!

Oh my how this touched my heart. I thought this a true story and cried at how you talked about your family and your friends. This is a great fictional euology you have did here and I should try this myself but where to begin. I did write one a while back and my father wanted me to use it for him when he passes.

You did a wonderful job here and best wishes in this contest if it is still active. Love,Magics PS Heaven can wait we need you here:)

Sweet, folksy and warm. I have the feeling, Mystery Writer, that you know at least some of these people---probably all. In fact, I'll wager you even make an appearance. I'll bet my last Kit Kat there's no hot place in the lovely lady's future. The John and the peanut butter bit will stick to my ribs. Peace, Lee

    Lee,

    Though I'd be eager to savor that Kit Kat bar, I think I'd prefer you to be right...about that hot place. As for John and the peanut butter..well, I've been blessed by his love many times over. Thank you so much for your support and kind review. Smiles to you....

Mystery Writer,
your entry in the personal eulogy writing prompt is very well written with wonderful narrative, great internal dialogue and very good descriptive writing. I enjoy how the narrator swore but asked the Lord for forgiveness and not holding it against her. I love how Nana's daughter explained to little Kaitlyn about grandma taking a well deserved nap. I enjoyed the humor in this line: "You're the best Sis ever ... even if you did call me Bitch. Thought I'd forget, didn't you? Just kidding ... I finally get to have the last word. So there." You managed to include fanstorians in this eulogy. I think I know who wrote this. This should do excellent in the contest. It was a delight to read. I hope Mel gets the last word and you don't go the the "hot" spot.
Missy.

Hi, Author, this is interesting. By addressing all those relatives I can see how good you are in description and characterization. I bet when the contest is over, I can say, didn't I tell you I knew who you were? Having the last word is great, right? Don't let others do it if you can ... :)

'Getting The Last Word' is a most amusing eulogy that could bring smiles to every family member. It is mighty long and leaves your thoughts of no one out, even FS is mentioned. What a surprise!

This is a piece that is fun to read.

    Alaska,

    In my family, if they all don't get equal treatment..look out. Unless it's because someone is in trouble..then the infamous "NOBODY" is the only one here. LOL Smiles to you...

This was very entertaining and it sounds like you will definitely get the last word. At least the last one that anyone can refute. LOL! Good luck in the contest. Debbie :0)

Nicely done, whoever you are, LOL. I enjoy reading these entries. Yours flows, is simple to understand, and written clearly w/no errors that I could find. There's nothing I would change or correct. Well done!
