A Widower’s Diary: Kate asked me to sing the theme song from the 80’s cartoon Ulysses 31 at her funeral

At first I didn’t want anything to do with the funeral. Neither Kate nor I were religious. She was also very private. So a public religious ceremony seemed wrong. Besides, I had more urgent things to attend to—the children’s emotional states, the bills in Kate’s name, how to structure life… Who decided funerals should be so close to death? I’ve been busy, dammit! The funeral felt like a non-urgent duty.

o I decided it should be short and sweet. Well, probably not sweet, but certainly short. I wanted to make the funeral devoid of personality and meaning. I would not give him any emotional energy. Better yet, I would choke it on emotional energy. There would be no music, as few prayers as possible and no sermons. Definitely no speeches. It wasn’t worth attention – so it wasn’t going to get any.
