Sorry to put a negative light on a great lady's departure, but I thought the funeral made a mockery of many of the things Aretha stood for. A gold-plated coffin! Really? And costume changes! How many Detroit citizens could have been fed or housed or schooled with... Oh nevermind. |
Agreed, a great lady should have a great send-off, but I really believe she would have been embarrassed by such a gaudy affair.
I doubt there are many here who agree with me, But then, perhaps I'm the only person on earth who thinks this way.
