    Anyone know when it is.

    .... I don't want to be late! It would be good to shop for the right outfit to look dead in wouldn't it?

    I'm thinking not many people will go. My immediate family but that's a given. I have no idea about other family members. My dad's side would probably go. They still like me. My mom's... not so much. A few friends, of course. I don't think many would show up. They...

    I Think Its Normal

    People have a certain preoccupation with death. I don't think its weird that I've thought about my funeral. Usually this subject (who's going to be at my funeral when I die) is in the context of now. If I were to die today, who would be there? I really don't think of it in a...

    My Funeral

    When it'll be my funeral, I will say Alleluia, the day has finally come.  God decided taking me.  At my funeral, I want something private and reserved.  I want my parents there if they are still around, my husband, (kids if we have any).

    Sometimes I Wonder

    As each day passes, sometimes all I can think is This is my life? What exactly am I working towards? Why should I bother? And as life goes on, we all wonder what it's like to die. Sometimes, I wish my life would end so I wouldn't have to anticipate it. At...

    I Hope Someone Will Care

    If I died today there wouldn't be many people at my funeral. In fact, if I died at home I probably wouldn't be missed or discovered for weeks, perhaps months. My mother and grandmother would be there. My father might attend if someone takes the trouble to inform him. I have...

    I Am Healthy And Young...But Think About My Funeral A LOT.

    I have a song list, an invite list, a location plan and an order of service. Morbid curiosity, or good planning?

    A Fair Idea

    It will be small and among it will be a number of people who are there to make sure I am really dead Such as the receiver of student loan payments and the tax man :)

    I Know That I'll Show Up

    I'll be the one in the box.  You won't be able to miss me. Just don't know who else will be there. Should I send my invites out now?

    Why Would They Come?

    I think a lot about my death. What my obituary would say. I started looking at urns. Im going to make a thumb print pendant for my daughter. But truthfully, everyone else has hurt me or dont really know me, so why would they come? I dont want a service. No need to buy me...

    I Don't Know Who Will Come.

    I went to the funeral of a 91 year old lady this week and the church was full. Her family paid tribute to her and clearly loved and valued her very much. I do worry that, when its my turn to go, there will only be the vicar there. I have no family, and my circle of friends is...

    I can imagine that no one would,

    but at least I would be dead so I wouldn't have to worry about that anyway.

    Probably no one, or very few at this stage. But I`m hoping to rectify that. I need to allow myself to get close to people and let them into my life.
