Funeral Thoughts

It’s an odd topic for me to discuss at this point in my life.  I’ll give you some context and then you will understand.

Today I went to a funeral of someone I didn’t even know.  I was working in the office of the Church I work at, and they were bringing stuff in for the funeral that would be held there that afternoon.  They quickly realized that they had no one to run our sound board for them…so I did…and that’s how I ended up going to it in the first place.

The funeral was for an elderly lady who was well respected by everyone in town…and when I say everyone, I mean EVERYONE!  The place was packed!  It was an open casket funeral, and everyone had a good time remembering the person who’s life they had come there to celebrate.  It was nice to be able to be there.

Certain aspects of that funeral, got me thinking about my own…because it will happen some day and there’s nothing I can do about it.

First of all, open caskets are nice for some people (I guess it gives the grievers the sense that the person they are mourning the sense that the person is still with them…even though they are not.)  For my funeral I do not want an open casket.  Just so you all know.  I don’t want anything I used to own just hanging around.  Donate my organs, burn me up and bury me before you go to my funeral…before you do all that, make sure I’m dead first! because it’s no fun being buried alive.  After you do all that you can go to my funeral and have a good time!  Eat as much food as you want!

And now I’m going to go and enjoy life! (because everyone should do that from time to time).  See you all whenever I post next.  (should be soon…no worries!)
