Do you know what yours are?

I want to be cremated.

Then I want a wake, or memorial in a house or a hall - not in a funeral parlor.

I want music playing,


You get the idea.

I think a nice compilation video or slide show of my life and the ones I've loved playing.

Lots of food and drinks.

People telling stories about me and my life

I don't want to sit on a mantle or be put in some prentious urn. 

Maybe scattered somewhere would be nice.


SO.. what about you?

All the same but I will be in an urn if I passed first... My DH wants to keep until he passes and then his ashes will be combined with mine and half spread in Ireland and half spread where he chooses

I want people to throw a party for me. I want them to celebrate my life. I have already told my husband. And NO ONE is to wear black. They must wear bright colorful shirts.



And I want to be buried next to my husband.

I told my hubby if I go first and he gas me cremated I will haunt him forever. I just want a normal funeral service. In a funeral home and then everyone go party and think of me. I always say dont cry for me when I'm gone because I'm in a better place.

I'm not sure. Hubby however does he wants to be cremated and some of his ashes turned into tattoo ink and for me to get a memorial tattoo. What I do with the rest of his ashes is up to me he says.

This has been a topic of conversation in my family a lot lately. My grandmother is not doing well at all, so death and planning for it has been on everyones mind. My parents have made it very clear to me what they do and don't want. I know what I would like. As cheap as possible and I want it to be a celebration of my life, rather than the mourning of my death. However they decide to go about that I will be fine with.
