 obviously tv shows aren't what they used to be.  a reality show on the "showiest" funerals.  i'm not sure yet on how i feel about the whole idea...perhaps i will tune in and check it out for myself.  and maybe i will sign up to have that funeral home take care of my services, nothing like going out with a big show :P

*what do you think?

My in laws went to a funeral where everyone was in pin stripe suits, canes and hats and they threw mardi gras beads in on the casket instead of flowers. 0.o They were totally weirded out. lol

The woman in the avi pic is not me, she is my inspiration.  I am a wife, a mother, and an aspiring trainer and nutritionist. I love seeing people get fit and healthy to lead the lives they are meant to live.

We lost a good friend in a motorcycle accident last summer.  He was a lifelong biker and wanted a party for his funeral.  He and his brother had sat down and discussed exactly what they wanted for their funerals.  So his brother did his best to honor his wishes.  It was casual dress and an open bar.  All of his Harley T-shirts were drapped on the back of each chair and all of his motorycle memoribilia was displayed in the funeral home.  His brother then told us to take what we wanted to remember Robo by.  He has some special pieces for his close friends.  Then we took turns telling our favorite Robo stories.  It was a very fitting send off for a wonderful guy!  He would have loved it!

Who says funerals have to be sad and drag... They.should be about celebrating life and saying good bye.

Go out with a bang kind of style!

I went to a funeral, everyone was requested to wear pink even the men. All the women family members wore big derby hats the deceased woman was a collector.

Now that is an awesome send off. I love that they left his things out for his friends to collect to remember him by, instead of fighting over it. That's true friendship, and true family.

I work at a full service funeral home/moselium as an accountant, I see enough funerals without watching it on tv! lol but it might be interesting for marketing ideas for work.

maybe im selfish... but i want people to be sad when im gone! not throwing a big party (though i have nothing against that for other people) or making a tv show out of it.
