why is it that nowadays it costs a small fortune just to have a funeral?
the adverage casket is anywhere from 5 -8 thousand $. plus the funeral home, buriel, headstone.
I have a living will that states when i die i want a plain pine box constructed by a family member. i dont want a wake just a burial. and no headstone other then a wooden cross with my name etched into it.
I need to find out if there is a way that i could request that i do not want to be embalmed..i have didnt think of it untill after i had my will drawn up. If i can get away with it i will add it.
Also i dont want anyone wearing black..not a drop. Only white. I believe that we are the bride of Christ and that my funeral should be an wedding
have you ever laid in an average casket?..its comfortable padded with soft satain and even a little pillow. WTF would i need this for. I AM DEAD do you really think i am going to get up and complain that i am uncomfortable. or that i dont like the color of the casket. Caskets today are also built to keep out water dirt and bugs out and they help preserve the body by locking out the majority of air so it takes longer to decompose. Are you planning to dig me up? why does it matter if my body gets wet or eaten by worms and decomposes at the normal rate. Just let me rot in peace. its not the body thats important anyway..im more worried about what happens to my soul. our body is just a vessel that we "rent" while we are here on earth, the spirit lives for eternity.
