What do you want to have done with you?

 

I want to be cremated some of me to be spread over my parents and grandparents graves I want the rest of me to be spread into the winds off a cliff over looking the ocean in Ireland.

I want people to celebrate who I was by partying. I want a live band loud frinds and lots of good food and drinks. Thats the way I celebrated my whole life thats how I want my loved ones to send me out.

That sounds great! I dont know what i want.. i have never thought about it. But i do know that i dont want everyone in black and being all traditional... but it IS a funeral. I dont see how anyone will want to be partying and wanting to get a live band...

Any organs and tissue that can be donated will be, after that, what's left will be donated to our medical school.  A nice garden with a "thinking" bench and fountain will be made for those who want to go somewhere to "remember" me.

I want a green burial. Not because I'm environmentally friendly, but because it makes more sense to me than pumping my body full of chemicals and then surrounding it in cement so that those chemicals don't poison the ground water.

The idea of cremation just creeps me out. 

ETA: I too want any and everything that can be harvested and donated to be. I won't need it anymore, and I'd love to know that someone else can keep living because I died.

I want to be cremated and have my ashes scattered.  I do not want anything religious at all, as I'm an atheist.  I want people to share their memories and all that.  Mourn together, remember my life together, etc.  That's all.  Nothing fancy.  I won't care, I'll be dead.

That's a great idea!  I'm assuming I'll be too old to have any organs worth donating.  People in my family tend to die between 97 and 102.  But I like the donating the body thing!  Maybe someone will be interested in how the old bag lived so long.  I wonder if they'll figure out the secret:  wine, weed and Oreos.

I too am atheist, but IMO, a funeral is for the living, not the dead. If my family wants to have a religious ceremony, I'm okay with that. Whatever comforts them at the time is what matters to me. :)

I plan to donate any usable organs and then be creamated. I don't really care what they do with my ashes to be honest, keep them, bury them, scatter them..whatever. I don't want a funeral but just a rememberance with good food, drinks and the people I love there supporting and bonding with each other.

Whereas alot of people think its disrespectful for people to marry soon after a spouse dies I would like my hubs to not waste time if someone good comes along if I die before him. I think its a compliment to me if he actually wants to remarry.
