    • If I die of a terminal disease and I have time to plan my funeral...I will.  I plan on doing a video..and talking at my own funeral...and then I can let everyone know how I felt about life, my family, and my friends.  And then I will end it in saying something funny and stupid for them to remember me by.  

      If I can’t plan it (not that it’s something I dying to do..no pun intended)...I would hope they would say that I made people laugh and I loved life!happy

    • I have thought about this for obvious reasons – first I want to be cremated and then my ashes placed in a pink coffin – which is so light that the pall bearers almost have to weight it down – I would hate to think they looked like they struggled with my heifer body ....

      As I go in my shiny pink coffin covered in stargazer lilies I would like sung Hello Dolly by Louis Armstrong ...

      I said hello, dolly,......well, hello, dolly
      Its so nice to have you back where you belong
      Youre lookin swell, dolly.......i can tell, dolly
      Youre still glowin...youre still crowin...youre still goin strong
      I feel that room swayin......while the bands playin
      One of your old favourite songs from way back when
      So..... take her wrap, fellas.......find her an empty lap, fellas
      Dollyll never go away again  

      As everyone files out sobbing and heartbroken and the coffin is removed to the burial plot I want Backwood Barbie by Dolly Parton playing.

      I grew up poor and ragged, just a simple country girl.
      I wanted to be pretty more than anything in the world,
      like Barbie or the models in the Fredricks' catalog.
      From rags to wishes in my dreams I could have it all.
      I'm just a backwoods Barbie, too much makeup, too much hair.
      Don't be fooled by thinkin' that the goods are not all there.
      Don't let these false eyelashes lead you to believe that
      I'm as shallow as I look 'cause I run true and deep.  

      As you can see I've not given it one jot of a thought .......
      I have money in an account ready for the drinks party ......food etc; plus know what I'm saying to mates on a video ........

    • To be absolutely honest, I don’t want anyone to have words to say over me but my hubby, daughters, grandchildren, siblings. Anyone else can just remember whatever it was that they felt was good/bad about me and keep it to themselves. I know my family is long winded so they will take up most of the time talking lol (2) minutes or not lol.

    • She really DID care and want the best for her family. She played a part in ending abortion as birth control in America. She tried to help people she came in contact with in any way that she could, especially by praying for them, trying to give them hope, and making them laugh.

    • I would hope that it would be said that I was such a compassionate and caring person, even to those I did not know. That I was a wonderful daughter,mother, and wife.
      That I brought joy to those who were in my life.

    • If I live to be 80 I will have a “checking out” or ready to “kick the bucket” party.

      As for if I die before that...I don’t care what is done. My loved ones can do whatever serves them.  I told my husband to have me cremated and put my ashes in a hole and plant a tree. if he does that...I’ll never know.

    • I’m not having a funeral.  I simply want a cheapa$$ cremation and nothing more.

      I have, however, left money for a blow out party after I’m gone.  My brother will say all the nice things about me.  

      Everyone who attends will be given 5 minutes for a rebuttal.
