27. Are you sure your Southern?
Southern Baptists down here believe when you die a funeral should not be a dirge, but should be a celebration. A celebration of that person's life and a celebration that they are "in a better place".

Another Southern tradition is to plan your funeral in advance. I'm sure that Coretta King and her family did. Do you have a problem with that?
