Mama's Dream Funeral!
4 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After attending the funeral of a relative, Mama desires to have her dream funeral even if it means giving the money that was saved for a trip to the Grand Canyon with her family over to the funeral home. In this episode, we get the wonderful Dorothy Van as Aunt Effie. While Mama knows why she is being so stingy about groceries and not going bowling with her family, Iola insists that she tells her family about her funeral plans while she is hemming her dress for her final resting place. When the family is outraged and goes bowling leaving Mama alone, Mama imagines what it will be like when she does go and how the family does react and behave at the funeral home is worth watching. The funeral director has persuaded Mama to have a lavish funeral and costing her a mighty fortune.
