What would you "have" said?

Postby unjonharley » Fri Mar 28, 2014 7:48 pm

So, Your in the box, stiff as a board.. Your friends and family are filing past the casket.. They are about to close the lid on you..

What would you like to have people say about you at this time??

You were a good christian, father, mother, sister, leader, builder or what???????

Phhht. I just want friends & family to get drunk off their asses and remember all the stupid things I've done while laughing a lot. Don't even care if a soul shows up when they dump my body into the pit in the ground (don't want a box, don't want "preservatives"), I just want them at the Celebration.

I KNOW I am not going to my funeral. So they may as well have a party...:)

I've told my family no funeral, no memorial. I hate having people talk about me while I'm alive, much less when I can't come back and kick ass.
