words to say at a funeral – Would anyone
Luke: As a doornail. Listen, I’m about to light this baby up and I thought that maybe you might wanna say a few words or something? After all, he was your Dad too.
Leia: Hmmm….naaah. I’m gonna have to pass on that one.
Luke: Are you sure? I’ve got some weenies and marshmallows, I was thinking we could roast ‘em while he burns. C’mon, it’ll be fun! This is the last time we’ll ever have the whole family together like this!
Leia: Err.. incredibly tempting as that may sound – yes, I’m sure. The Ewoks are throwing a big party over at the village in a few. Everybody from the fleet is gonna be there, and I already told Han I’d be his date. Plus, y’know we never really bonded, we didn’t have that whole "Force thing" going on that you guys had. And I just don’t have the same sort of issues with being adopted that you seem to have, I wasn’t stuck on some third rate dirtball of a planet with a grumpy moisture farmer for a father figure. I was a Princess! My Dad was a Senator and later ruler of our whole planet, which was a beautiful, cultured planet. My childhood totally rocked!
Luke: Okay, okay, you don’t have to rub it in! If you don’t wanna come just say so.
Leia: Well, I didn’t want to just come out and say it since this is his funeral and all, but frankly, I hated the guy. He always had a foul stench about him. Once when I was 15 my adopted father brought me to Coruscant to meet the Emperor and Vader totally hit on me, kept on going on about how much I reminded him of his old girlfriend. Which was creepy enough since I was only 15, but is even creepier now that I know he was my Dad. After that, I kept on getting weird calls on my communicator with all this heavy breathing – like we didn’t know it was him! It was horrible, I kept on changing my number and he kept on getting it again through Imperial intelligence. After about 3 years of that, he finally gave up.
Luke: Wow! Girl, you are just always dodging that incest bullet, aren’t you?
Leia: Yeah, tell me about it! Where was I? Oh yeah, then he captured my ship, tortured me, blew up my homeworld, destroyed my base, captured me again, tortured my boyfriend then froze him in a block of carbonite for a year. I ended up being captured and becoming a slave to a giant, slimy slug who was really, really horny while trying to undo that last one. So no, I didn’t like him and I won’t be coming to his damn funeral!
Luke: Gee, I never thought of it like that before. Well, run along. I’ll see ya at the Ewok shindig. Save some dip for me!
on saying goodbye…
So many people came who’s lives she had touched.
I arranged for the children at the school, and all the staff, to write on stars and flowers and then placed them on lolly sticks in an arrangement of memories…like flowers.
There among the lilies and roses sat this gift of over 70 memories and the Vicar carried it to her coffin along with a special prayer.
There was something about the glitter, lolly sticks and paper that made the sadness more bearable…simple things with words of love and truth that only a child could write so effortlessly….

Live from Las Vegas
La Luna (Live in Concert)
Fans of small, pretty-voiced soprano Sarah Brightman will not be disappointed by this CD. In addition to some pop songs, Brightman sings high-flying excerpts from Orff’s Carmina Burana, Puccini’s “O mio babbino caro” (performed better by almost any other operatic soprano elsewhere), and “Alleluia” from Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate. One might call this a crossover disc; others might just see it as a recording featuring a pop singer with artsy aspirations. Whatever it is, Brightman’s fans love her; others do not. Two duets with tenor Jose Cura remind the listener what opera singing really ought to sound like. –Robert Levine
