Re: Have you planned your funeral?

No need to plan my funeral, it is for the living so let them have what they want.

If you are waiting until you're dead to hear good music, you are doing it very, very wrong.

Some quick choices. I have thought of others, but can't remember them at the moment.

No nothing for me. I told my wife cremation, no services, songs, funerary expenses of any kind.

If possible to put my ashes in a "Chinese take out box", rather than wasting money on an urn. This way she can keep the money. Do with the ashes whatever, I won't be able to care anyway.

Re: Have you planned your funeral?

I want my funeral to be people getting together to have a good time somewhere. I don't really care what they do or what they listen to.

No service for me. I want to buy a small plot of land in the mountains. Have someone dig a hole, then toss my body in there and cover it. No casket. Just roll my body off into the hole and cover it up. Probably should put a cheap headstone there so nobody thinks its a crime scene. I'm not sure how you would get my body there though. Toss it in the back of someones truck I guess. Someone grab the legs, the other grab the arms, and just throw me in. You would have to do it quickly upon my death before the body starts to smell too much to stomach it.

Cremation for me, the kids can have a service if they want, won't matter to me. My directions call for my ashes to be poured in the creek that runs along my property line. Growing up in this area I spent all my youth afield, hunting, trapping, fishing, hiking, camping, just enjoying the outdoors, so think it fitting to spread my remains thru the neighborhood. lol
Initially I told my kids to pour my ashes into the sump pump crock in the basement since it pumps out into the creek, my daughter didn't like that approach.

I’ve told my wife when my times comes, I want top shelf all the way.

Like; two-ply garbage bag and a highway with a view.

@TheDudeLebowski look up sky burial.

What have you chosen? Irreverent choices are welcomed as well.
@NextTimeAround I had no clue you were receiving treatment. My thoughts are with you.

Cremation for me. I'd like to come back as a tree (there's all kinds but my new migraine med causes major memory loss!)

I used to think 'celebration of life' events were dorky but I've come around. I hope people say that I was kind and made them laugh.

Re: Have you planned your funeral?

People face death in different ways.

Personally, I will say to my family what my father said to me: no funeral. Dispose of the body as inexpensively as you can. Don't waste money on funeral homes.

My biggest care when I die will be that loved ones I leave behind are happy. I don't know what happens in the afterlife, but I'm sure it doesn't depend on what happens to my body in this life.

Thanks all for your well wishes. It is making me change my choice of music.

I don't really want to get eaten by birds unless they are chickens. As much chicken as ive eaten, I'll return the favor. But don't really like birds all that much otherwise.

Really should go the route of the departed in the movie Snatch. I've probably eaten more pork than anything else. "Feed em to the pigs Errol"

Re: Have you planned your funeral?

I haven't. And It doesn't matter what is done after I'm gone. I wouldn't want a big deal about it anyways. I'm gone! My mom wants to be cremated and my dad wants to be buried in a pod as a tree (I believe he has this arranged).

You fight this with all you've got. Preparing, just in case, isn't necessarily a bad idea. Most of us need to do that for our loved ones.
