Been to a few of them, it sucks to bury a friend and coworker.
Had a friend get blown up in a transformer vault. His girlfriend was a stripper and all the strippers in town showed up for the funeral, hard not to have a smile on your face despite the reason we we all there. RIP John.

I hate funerals and I have never attended one of a Union brother.

the iron workers around here have some members show up and say something and have, i'm not sure what you would call it but like a memorial board union specific they take to the viewing. i'm trying to figure out something to do in our local if anyone has any suggestions i will gladly take them.

All locals are different. If members of the executive board, and coworkers make a showing it looks good for solidarity.
