 Archibald 'Archie' Bunker is a fictional New Yorker in the 1970s
 top-rated American television sitcom All in the Family and its
 spin-off Archie Bunker's Place, played to acclaim by Carroll
 O'Connor.

 Jerome 'Stretch' Cunningham, played by James Cromwell, was
 Archie's friend and co-worker from the loading dock.  In one
 episode, Stretch dies of a heart attack. Archie reluctantly
 agrees to deliver Stretch Cunningham's eulogy, unaware that
 his departed friend was Jewish.

Subj:     Angry, Old Man Dies (S793)
          From: virv on 3/23/2012

 An old man and woman were married for many years, even though
 they hated each other.  Whenever there was a confrontation,
 yelling could be heard deep into the night.  The old man would
 shout, "When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave
 and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!"

 Neighbors feared him.  They believed he practiced magic because
 of the many strange occurrences that took place in their neighbor-
 hood.  The old man liked the fact that he was feared.  To every-
 one's relief, he died of a heart attack when he was 98.  His wife
 had a closed casket at the funeral.

 After the burial, she went straight to the local bar and began
 to party as if there was no tomorrow.  Her neighbors, concerned
 for her safety, asked "Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be
 able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest
 of your life?"

 The wife put down her drink and said, "Let him dig.  I had him
 buried upside down.  And I know he won't ask for directions."

Subj:     Bagpiper At A Pauper's Funeral (S676, S782)
          From: allenbergman on 12/20/2009
      and From: darrelldre on 1/16/2010
 Also see 'Minister's First Funeral' in Preacher-supp)

 As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a
 funeral director to play at a grave side service for a home-
 less man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to
 be at a pauper's cemetery in the Kentucky back-country.

 As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost; and
 being a typical man I didn't stop for directions.  I finally
 arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently
 gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight.  There were only
 the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.

 I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late.  I
 went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault
 lid was already in place.

 I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.  The
 workers put down their lunches and began to gather around.
 I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family
 and friends.  I played like I've never played before for
 this homeless man.  And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the
 workers began to weep.  They wept, I wept, we all wept
 together.  When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and
 started for my car.  Though my head hung low my heart was
 full.

 As I was opened the door to my car, I heard one of the
 workers say, "Sweet Mother of Jesus, I never seen nothin'
 like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks
 for twenty years."

Subj:     Preparing For The Future (S625)
          From: LABLaughsAdult on 12/31/2008

 It was a difficult subject to bring before his aged
 mother, but John felt that he must.

 "Mom, you are no longer a spring chicken and you do
 need to think ahead of what will happen in the future.
 Why don't we make arrangements about when..... you
 know... when.... God forbid... you pass on?"

 The mother didn't say anything, just sat there staring
 ahead.

 "I mean, Mom, like.... how do you want to finally go?
 Do you want to be buried? Cremated?"

 There was yet another long pause. Then the mother looked
 up and said, "Son, why don't you simply surprise me?"
