    Not only is it grey and snowy this morning in the DC area, but we're waiting for a phone call from Pittsburgh to tell us it's time to plan and attend another family funeral.

    TOTD: Have you given any thought to your own sendoff? Told relatives what you want to have done? My husband knows I want the full, traditional Episcopal funeral, from "O God, Our Help in Ages Past", down to "The King of Love my Shepherd Is." Are you leaving any instructions for your Big Goodbye?

    Today is a bit overcast but that is suppose to clear out by this afternoon. Then sun and temps in the low 80's.

    TOTD. I want to be cremated and after that I really don't care what anyone does with the ashes. Whatever anyone needs to do to get through the grief process is fine with me.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    TOTD: I want to be buried, not cremated

    Cold and Rainy today. Bleh. Supposed to be like this all weekend.

    TOTD: I'd like to be cremated. Funerals are for the survivors. I'm really not interested in being involved in the decision of what type of memorial service happens. As far as I'm concerned that's the mourners call on how they want to deal with my passing. At that point I don't think I'll care.

    TOTD: Not only do they know how I will be burried - who will perform the service - we have burial plots already as well. :)

    Cremation and my ashes scattered in a small service at Devil's Lake.

    Do you have your funeral arrangements prepared? :mad::p

    Seriously though - my services and my grave are already arranged and in writing. The casket, the funeral home, the vault, and the opening of the grave are the only expenses left to be covered - and as far as they go - I'd be happy with a pine box and being laid out at the church.

    I am in Indiana attending a funeral now. On Monday we got word that my wife's Mom died unexpectedly. Today will be the viewing and Saturday will be the funeral.

    My Mother in Law was a wonderful person. She was the most loving, caring and unselfish person I have ever met in my life. The funeral will be a celebration of her life and will be well suited for the people she left behind.
