My grandmother has always been obsessed with pre-planning her funeral. I can even remember she would ask my mother and I what items we would want she died, tell us what music we had better play at her funeral, etc. Sadly, my grandmother suddenly and expectedly passed away this past weekend. I can understand leaving basic funeral arrangengs to help the family left behind, but I feel as though my grandmother took it to a whole new level. We found “scrapbooks” filled with magazine clippings, photo-copied pages, hand written notes, etc. on EXACTLY how she wants her obituary written, the funeral program, what songs are to be played when and where, what time mass is to start, what pictures to use, even down to exactly which floral arrangements my mother, myself, and my sister are to order and send to the funeral home! But wait, there’s more... a highlighted MAP of the exact route she wants the funeral procession to take around the town she came from! Is it me, or does all this seem a bit OBSESSIVE?? I know for a fact that my grandmother has always been a bit of a control freak and most definitely a perfectionsit, but I can’t help but think there may have been a lot more going on besides depression when it came to her mental health. Any insight that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated; has anyone else experienced this type of behavior with a loved one?
