There are no official family plans for a the former  Alaskan  senator Ted Stevens Funeral Yet.  But there are plans for a memorial mass in Anchorage set for Monday. It is not clear whether there will be some sort of US National “State” Funeral for Stevens but surely Alaska will have a state like celebration in his honor

Stevens’ family has not yet released plans on a funeral service, but there will be a memorial Mass Monday at the Holy Family Cathedral, at 12:10 p.m. It is not Stevens’ funeral, but rather a way for the archdiocese to honor him.

The public is invited to attend.

Voodoo priests and their religion(popular in Haiti) respect death and believe that Mass Burials and graves are wrong! Their belief and objections are so strong that the leading voodoo priest met with the Haitian President to object to mass earthquake burials.

There is also the fear among some of the Voodoo believers in Haiti, that “Zombies” may arise from the mass graves|burials in Haiti to persecute the dead.

Haiti’s voodoo priests say anonymous mass burials are an improper way to handle the tens of thousands of dead from the earthquake, and have taken their complaint to President Rene Preval.

Dumping the dead in hurriedly excavated mass graves without proper rites is seen as desecration in a country where many believe in zombies – dead bodies brought back to life by supernatural forces who could persecute the living.

Almost all the religions in the world, mainstream or not object to disrespect of the dead and improper burial.  Proper burial and respect for the dead is a core belief among most humans. Mass Graves and burials are seen as  desecration in  most every culture in the world.

Haiti Earthquake dead burials 70,000 In Mass Burials|Graves-YourFuneralGuy

18 Jan

Sadly, the horror continues, up to 70,000 Haitians may already be buried in Mass Graves. How it is happening is absolute horror. Haitian radio is telling the citizens to take the bodies into the streets.

Dump trucks are taking the Dead to landfills where they are counted(They gave up on Identifying the bodies) and buried covered   in dirt in mass burials, mass graves.

This is unacceptable treatment of the Dead for any society no matter how poor, no matter what the situation.

Sixty government dump trucks and loaders with eight-man teams do the work, Celestin said.

“It’s a long process. Step one, is they put the body into the loader. The loader then puts the body into the truck.”

Celestin said his men are not professionals, just road builders doing their best.
