Default Unusual obituary

Do you know anyone who deserves this?

EDIT: The link I originally posted is dead, so I'll post the text of the obit here.

Quote:
Dolores Aguilar

1929 - Aug. 7, 2008Dolores Aguilar, born in 1929 in New Mexico, left us on August 7, 2008. She will be met in the afterlife by her husband, Raymond, her son, Paul Jr., and daughter, Ruby.

She is survived by her daughters Marietta, Mitzi, Stella, Beatrice, Virginia and Ramona, and son Billy; grandchildren, Donnelle, Joe, Mitzie, Maria, Mario, Marty, Tynette, Tania, Leta, Alexandria, Tommy, Billy, Mathew, Raymond, Kenny, Javier, Lisa, Ashlie and Michael; great-grandchildren, Brendan, Joseph, Karissa, Jacob, Delaney, Shawn, Cienna, Bailey, Christian, Andre Jr., Andrea, Keith, Saeed, Nujaymah, Salma, Merissa, Emily, Jayci, Isabella, Samantha and Emily. I apologize if I missed anyone.

Dolores had no hobbies, made no contribution to society and rarely shared a kind word or deed in her life. I speak for the majority of her family when I say her presence will not be missed by many, very few tears will be shed and there will be no lamenting over her passing.

Her family will remember Dolores and amongst ourselves we will remember her in our own way, which were mostly sad and troubling times throughout the years. We may have some fond memories of her and perhaps we will think of those times too. But I truly believe at the end of the day ALL of us will really only miss what we never had, a good and kind mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I hope she is finally at peace with herself. As for the rest of us left behind, I hope this is the beginning of a time of healing and learning to be a family again.

There will be no service, no prayers and no closure for the family she spent a lifetime tearing apart. We cannot come together in the end to see to it that her grandchildren and great-grandchildren can say their goodbyes. So I say here for all of us, GOOD BYE, MOM.

Wow. But then we don't know what she did to her family, so maybe she did deserve that.

Oh, I'm sure she did deserve it. Her name, Dolores, seems very appropriate.

She must have been some piece of work!
The comments in the guest book speaks volumes too!

Very sad.

Is that for real? I can't imagine someone writing something like that. Regardless of how much someone dislikes their mother (I can't say I like my mother, but I would NEVER write something like that), I just can't imagine someone writing that.

Maybe counseling would help this person, maybe the mother was abusive? An alcoholic?

Sad really

"Dolores" means "sorrows." The root can also mean "pain." It's a reference to the Virgin Mary as Our Lady of Sorrows, but it sounds like this woman lived up to her name in a less-holy sense.

In some ways this is amusing but ultimately I think its tragic that anyone's life (then death) elicits this type of response.

holy crap that is bad ! how sad . it is hard to believe that there was not a least a tiny bit of good in that person. I mean you could not think of one thing ? jeez . i don't see how a family can try to heal when they could not even let go of the anger for a second to bul l**** though an obituary . "Deloris died no service will be held" The end would have been classier

I was just coming to paste the same quote. I can't imagine how bad this person must have treated people to get this kind of send off.

If I was in that position, I don't think I would have written an obituary at all.

I can think of a person or two who deserve this kind of thing. I'm impressed whoever wrote it had the balls to have it published.

A lot of horrible people become saints in the eyes of the living after they've died, and I find that far worse than admitting when someone just sucked at life. If someone was an a55, it's better to call a spade a spade.

see i don't believe she could have been all bad there had to be someone somewhere that she made a positive impact (however brief) on . How is it possible to walk through life without leaving at least one positive print .
i think that obituary is more telling about the people in her life than her life .

I don't know whether this woman truly deserved the obituary or not, because obviously I didn't know her. I do believe there are people who are worthy of such obituaries. In fact I know one myself.
