Jazz Funerals...and all that jazz

It's this kind of stuff that makes me homesick...

For those who are unfamiliar with the concept of a New Orleans Jazz Funeral, here's a quote from a memorial to Tuba Fat's funeral:

"For us in New Orleans, death is the ultimate celebration of a life well lived. It is a time to rejoice. It is a time to celebrate. For we believe that if we do not mark the passing with one final party, then the creator will never know how much the person was appreciated and loved."
