Sadly, no. Fifty people stared at her in utter astonishment through the (very long) eulogy, which was 90% about herself and her book and her childhood and 10% about the deceased. She was absolutely thrilled to be the center of attention, and whatever happened to her after the service, I knoweth not. I believe she skipped away from the assisted living center to her personal rainbow of narcissism, and the unicorn waiting there bore her to some other memorial.
The woman who spoke after her was even better, and eulogized the wrong person entirely.

DH was at a funeral a while back, and the deceased guy wanted Queen singing "We are the champions" at his funeral. Anyway someone listened to it before the funeral, forgot to unwind, and during the actual - "another one bites the dust" blared out to all the mourners gathered !!!!!!!
