Funeral arrangements are something we all have to do, eventually. It’s best we make them “pre-the-big-event” if we can manage. Post is just way too stressful for the bereaved family members.
Whenever high profile figures plan their last rites, it’s usually with great pomp and circumstance with a little military bravado thrown in for good measure. They always want to go out in style!
Two well known public figures, Bill and Hillary Clinton, (I’m sure you’ve heard of them) have been planning their big day, and Hillary crony Huma Abedin was given the honors of putting it all together. What is shocking is that these plans have been made since 2010 – seven years now! Did they perhaps think Hillary wasn’t even going to make it to 2017?
According to the New York Post:
A long-time aide to Hillary Clinton sought to map out her funeral — and Bill Clinton’s — in 2010 because “planning is best done when they are still with us,” according to an email released on Wednesday by Judicial Watch.
Capricia Marshall, who was chief of protocol for the State Department when Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state, wrote to Huma Abedin, Doug Band and Cheryl Mills on Feb. 23, 2010, saying “everytime someone significant passes, I am flooded with requests” about the Clintons’ arrangements.
“Planning is necessary and best done when they are still with us,” she wrote to top Clinton aide Abedin.
So are these phrases in code, suggesting that Hillary was sick enough to be considered at death’s door?
“As well, Huma, I would make the same suggestion to you — for her it will be a little different … And once affirmed it will be very hard for someone to deny the type of ceremony she wanted — as well I understand that the President can request certain arrangements for her that she/her rep cannot (ie if you want the motorcade to go through DC — stop somewhere),” Marshall wrote in one email.
She told the aides she needed to contact the military to prepare for the funerals — “as Protocol has a lot to do with planning, notification etc.”
Huma has a lot on her plate! Not only is she trying to land a book deal, she has to continued to adjust any future funeral plans of Bill and Hillary’s. Since they have done their best to hide their health issues from the world, we have no idea what their life expectancy is looking like from here on out. But if they’ve been planning these events since 2010, it may be sooner than we all think.
