    I spent most of my life as a partying hellion. My life has been a party and so should my death be! I say cremate me and let the thousands in casket money saved be better spent on an open bar and a kickass live band! With a little luck some of the "mourners" might even...

    They should all be happy

    that I'm dead and no longer a burden to them all my friends and family members probably deep down inside hate me since they keep saying it's all my own fault. Meh! So they should at least be honest and celebrate :)

    NOT Traditional.

    I think it would be great for my loved ones to have a party at my funeral!  It's cool to think of them laughing and celebrating my life, instead of mourning my death.  I can see them now, having a few drinks and talking and laughing about some crazy stuff I did. I also...

    A Celebration Of Life

    I never understood the purpose of a funeral. Sure it was a time for friends and family of the deceased to mourn the loss of a loved one but why must it be so sad? If one person could bring people together for one big occasion then why not have fun and celebrate the life of a...

    For starters I want birthday cake at my funeral.

    ..birthday cake is the best. As for real food I don't know yet. Musically I would like to have Black veil Brides and Bring Me The Horizon perform although that will depend based upon when I pass.

    Death is inevitable, and that's simply the way it is.  I've felt this way since childhood-- nearly as long as I can remember-- most likely because my parents allowed my siblings and I to watch nature documentaries and hold funerals for beloved pets when they passed on...

    I don't want anyone spending allot of money on a funeral. It is such a waste. My sister owns a flower shop and she makes really good money on these. I don't want any one spending money on me in death than they would while living.

    I know funerals are for the living, not the dead but I don't want some sad event.  I want a celebration of what was, not a mourning of what was lost.

    Yep. My kids have the instructions.

    Guys can wear black ties. Girls can wear black hats or scarves. But other than that,I want everybody in bright colours. A big party afterwards where people can tell stories and have a laugh. And my ashes to be scattered in the bay at Port Isaac in Cornwall.

    I would so much rather have my funeral be a

    happy way to send me out, with everybody who loved and cared about my celebrating my life and the positive things they remember about me, than have it be all sad and dark and gloomy, mourning my death. Everyone has to die at some point. Why not remember the good?
