Thanks Phizzy, that's exactly what I heard last night. In about that exact order. Birth death, then baptism record. Then things he did like helped building the hall, etc.
It was like a canned speech. One I've heard dozens of times before and I get more disgusted with the further I get away from this cult.
I mean, a 10 minute interview with the deceased family to gather dates and bam! You've got a fill-in-the blanks funeral talk.
And the facts are nothing. It's like if you did a search and found public records of a distant ancestor. You see when they were born, died, got married. Maybe what they did. But you get NO sense of what that ancestor was like. What were their passions? What type of person were they? And that's the type of talk they gave last night. Just facts and dates that barely scratch the surface of a life lived.
