  1. It’s good to treat the dead with respect, they can no longer stand up and defend themselves and it’s wrong to kick someone who cannot defend himself.

  2. I was gutting myself all through the post! But, its so true that we often go to funerals of people to pay our respects when we may not necessary have liked or got on with the person, but is societies expectation of us. I would definitely be going over the wall to his garden to get my footballs back!
