  • on a roll huh? I would like to have a huge party, like a fun party for my funeral. I would not want anyone mourning my death. I would like for them to get together & celebrate the life i lived & the life i gave this world.

  • Geez, what a deep question sister. You are thinking deep thoughts today. Idk,,,I want to be cremated for the simple fact that I want that money to go towards life. My kids lives and however I can help them. I dont want anyone stuck with a huge bill for my death, its not really worth it to me to be intumed somewhere, or have a big open casket funeral. Im not there,,,,,Plus, I really dont want an open casket thing, just dont want people to remember me like that.

  • WOW! You're not depressed are you? I told my children to handle it any way they want, I don't care. I think I would like a party though because I will be sliding into my grave with a bruised, battered body because my life has been one hell of a ride.

  • It's not important to me for people to mourn my death, but I know it would be important to my loved ones to have a way to mourn and have closure. I don't really care what my funeral is like or if there even is one. It would be for them to mourn and remember or whatever, not for me, so whatever my loved ones want is fine with me.

  • I've left it up to those who are still alive. Though I am sure it will be hard I want them to celebrate. I'm going home to God :) if my dh goes before me I am having him cremated and put on the mantle so his body will in a sense still be close to me. Which means I will have to build a mantle :)

  • No Corrina.. LOL I am not depressed... LOL... I think that people should mourn it helps with closure. I just dont want their mourning to be debilitating.

  • However I am not planning on dying. I will be changed in a twinkling of an eye and just get caught up...

  • i hope everyone laughs and has a decent time. i'm not big on mourning but i hope they aren't happy that i'm gone or anything. i don't want anything fancy, i know funerals are for the living so i hope they enjoy what they get out of the experience.

  • I don't want a funeral... I don't believe in embalming, and the ONLY way around that (in my state) is to be cremated immediately... So, no funeral for me...
