I confess to having a terrible fear about being buried while still alive so I want to be cremated - at least it would be over quickly
An ex friend of mine was like this, so she insisted that when she dies she needs to be buried with her cellphone and charger... The idea seemed good to her, until we pointed out that she wouldn't have any place to charge her phone while in a coffin and probably wouldn't get reception underground.
I have donated my body for medical research and any bits they can use for training cadaver dogs. I doubt any bits can be used for transplants.
I want a party not sadness on my demise. I've had a good life and want folks to celebrate this not to be sad.
As said, my Dad was. Pall Bearer for years and he thought flowers were a waste of money.
When he died we went to the flower shop to select a family wreath. The couple who own the shop knew Dad.
As we looked through the selection I made the comment " Dad would hate this, he'd far rather have vegetables!"
When his coffin came into the church, only the family wreath on it, we all had to laugh because the florist had put into the wreath all sorts of vegetables.
Dad was cremated and we ate a lot of the wreath!
