I’ve helped arrange them for other people, but I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about what I want my own funeral to be like. All I know is that I don’t want a drab, churchy, preachy affair and that somehow, I want it to be something approaching fun. I’m far from perfect, but I’ve spent so much of my life trying to make sure that others are happy that I would really like for my last act before they send me off to science or whatever not to be making them all feel like shit. Yes, I know they’re going to anyway because that’s just how it is when someone you care about dies, but I want to at least put whoever might be left of my friends and family by the time I go in a position where they can feel good about showing up and remembering all the fun we had.
I’ve also thought about doing something like this guy did. Hopefully at least one of the folks I’m sure would be a willing accomplice is still alive by then.
