well, MIL died Sunday, not unexpected. She was 90 and all in all had a good healthy long life.

bitch

that being said, I told BlackberryBoy that we need to write our obits now, to have them on hand so as to prevent the travesty that passes for obits in his family.

ONE paragraph. Nothing about her as an individual. Hell even I could come up with 4 or 5 sincere, kind, comments about her.

to add insult to injury 

they misspelled BlackberryKid1’s name when mentioning predeceased loved ones.

they misspelled BlackberryGrandKid2’s very common name

they left out our DIL after asking about her name and when they married

they misspelled 2 of MIL’s siblings names.

 

I noticed they didn’t make any errors about SIL’s family, kids, spouses, grands.

these are well educated people with 4 + postgraduate degrees among them, including 2 teachers ffs.

The funeral is in Chicago, 600 miles from us. we aren’t going. I figure they didn’t come to our daughter’s funeral, we can skip hers.

Yikes.  I can’t believe they didn’t go to BB1s funeral. That’s just awful.  I realize not everyone can make it to everything that suddenly in particular, but it sounds like there was really no representation from them?

Misspelling all the names is such a slap in the face.

      As someone who is obsessed with Ru Pauls' Drag Race, I would LOVE the nickname Miss Vangie! LOL

      Evangeline makes me think of the character in Nanny McPhee.

      i quite like Evangeline Jo. It makes me think of Little Women and Jo March. I highly doubt that was their reasoning though. Nicknames could be Evy, Eva, vangy, vanny, gelly, lin, linny, angel, angey, angeline, evan, lots really.

      I always associate the name Evangeline with New Orleans.  

      My friend named her daughter Evangeline and they call her Eva like Ee-Va.  Like from the movie Wall-EE.

      Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie

      This is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks,
      Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight,
      Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic,
      Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.
      Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean
      Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest.

      This is the forest primeval; but where are the hearts that beneath it
      Leaped like the roe, when he hears in the woodland the voice of the huntsman?
      Where is the thatch-roofed village, the home of Acadian farmers,--
      Men whose lives glided on like rivers that water the woodlands,
      Darkened by shadows of earth, but reflecting an image of heaven?
      Waste are those pleasant farms, and the farmers forever departed!
      Scattered like dust and leaves, when the mighty blasts of October
      Seize them, and whirl them aloft, and sprinkle them far o'er the ocean
      Naught but tradition remains of the beautiful village of Grand-Pré.

      Ye who believe in affection that hopes, and endures, and is patient,
      Ye who believe in the beauty and strength of woman's devotion,
      List to the mournful tradition, still sung by the pines of the forest;
      List to a Tale of Love in Acadie, home of the happy.

      etc. etc. etc.

      And now I want beignets.
