What will you funeral be like?

I hope it's not a traditional funeral. I want it to be a happy, fun party, not a somber funeral service in church. I want music, beer, food, I want people to have fun. I don't want anyone getting upset and weepy about me not being around anymore; I want people to celebrate that I've gone on to a better place and remember that I will meet them there some time.

I really have not written what I would like done. But I have talked about it. I want it simple and short.

My funeral will be attended by a hundred or so teary eyed women, many very beautiful. Not a single man will attend, however.

I dont really want a funeral. I dont want all the people I care about to have to go through it. I dont want the people who never gave a shit about me in life to have a way to ease their guilt. I want to be cremated and then I am gone. Those who love me know that I would want them to go somewhere we enjoyed together and to think of me. That will be all I could wish for.

I would prefer a simple memorial service, with some good classical music, some non-mawkish Bible verses, and memories shared by those who loved me.

Hard to say. Probably very small...quiet. And hopefully someone will drop a tear or two.

When I croak, I am going to be set on fire (i.e.cremated)...of course, I am going to have them play Guns N Roses, Metallica, and Led Zepplin (In My Time of Dying-at my rememberance)...and people can watch my pro wretling tapes, read my books, or things I have written...Like that Led Zepplin song goes, when I die, I want nobody to mourn..."if people want to say something nice about me, they can, or they can trash me, whatever is their bag...

Man, I want people to dance.
FROM: "Bells On" By Sloan
If you had a funeral, I'd be there with bells on If I had a funeral, would you even care? would you wear your silver dress? would you achually wear lipstick? would you lie upon my grave?  and be there with bells on so you could bring me from this life?

Eek. Morbid. I won't be there so I don't know.

I don't know...I'll be dead. But, seriously, I hope it is not a somber occasion. I would want everyone to remember the good times we had. I think that is the best way to honor someone. Also, I want everyone to have a big party afterwards and have a beer for me.Yeah, I think I'll mention that in my will.

Not sure. I guess I need to give it some thought.

Felicia, 35

I'm not sure what my funeral will be like, but I'm certain that it won't be my responsibility.

Jill, 60

I'll decide then.

I don't know, nothing big, with my friends and family there... really I have no clue. I wouldn't want bagpipe music though, I can't stand those things. Oh well, I'd be dead anyways, so it doesn't really matter what It will be like.

I not quite sure, but I hope it's not in the near future.

Brad, 20

Much like any other funeral. Regular viewing hours at the funeral home, a funeral Mass at church and and burial service. Hopefully my friends and relatives will cry and talk about how wonderful I was. I've been keeping a list of songs that I want played at the Mass and I know I don't want anyone singing Amazing Grace or reading Psalm 23.

Laura, 36
Lowell

Frankly, I'll probably hate it, whatever it may be! *g*

Talia, 23
Wilton

Ugh, I have no clue...

Ry, 23

Hopefully it'll be upsetting for those attending. Apart from that I don't know.

Shanna, 16

Well since I'm only 15 years old I don't even think about that stuff. I don't think you should think about that at any age. You are just jinxing your self when you think about those things. Enjoy life while you can.

Heather, 15

Will there be one?

Karen, 21

Hopefully it will be a celebration of my life and the belief that my eternal life is just begining. I would like a great flower arrangement. White and pink. Some lilies, spider mums. A good service and then a party afterward. (with kielbasa and some drinks). Hopefully everyone would have a fond remembrance of me and a positive way I touched their life.

I don't really like to think about that.
