I don't know. Hopefully a Beatles' lyric.

I do know this - I don't want a funeral, a funeral program and I really DON'T want an obit!

I want a funeral, but I don't think I want an open casket. I would like a to be laid to rest in a Star Trek casket. Doesn't this look awesome?!

I probably would want my nickname under my given name. Maybe with "May the force be with you", "Beam me up." or something geeky like that.

No way! I've always said that I wanted to be cremated and made into a firework too! I want my family, instead of paying heaps of money for a funeral/wake type deal, to find an orchestra to play the "1812 Overture" in its entirety and shoot off fireworks (including my 'body firework') on the cannon cues in the finale. But I suppose that's a little, you know, excessive.

Oh, and my boyfriend and I play a game in the car when we listen to his iPod. We'll put it on shuffle and say things like "Next song is the last song you'll hear before you die!" or "This song plays in your head every time you're in the shower", etc. Once he said "Next song's opening lyrics will be your epitaph!" It ended up being Notorious B.I.G.'s "Suicidal Thoughts" and the first lines were about dying and going to hell. It was morbidly ironic.

I don't want a stone. My last request is to be cremated and ashes scattered. I leave the memorial of my living in the memory of those who knew me.

I won't have one.

I have always thought that Shakespeare's epitaph was awesome:

GOOD FREND FOR JESUS SAKE FORBEARE
TO DIGG THE DUST ENCLOASED HEARE.
BLEST BE YE MAN YT SPARES THES STONES AND
CURST BE HE YT MOVES MY BONES.

To plagerize George Carlin, "He was here just a minute ago.."

Actually, I want to be cremated. BG/HP can keep on the mantle. Just store me in a nice Ming vase.

I will probably end up having something Beatles related written on my tombstone (open casket funeral is out of the question, I find that so creepy). I would also like this George Carlin quote though:

"Good day, farewell and may the forces of evil get confused on the way to your house!"

Because it's one if not my favorite quote ever.

I want to be cremated, but if there is to be a tombstone, I wish it's written "Jusqu'au bout de mes rÍves" (literally "until the end of my dreams", but better translated as "until I reach my dreams"), a phrase which suits me. :)

Ive always wanted the lyrics of Golden Slumbers.

"Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye"

We won't be having any funerals in our immediate family, but I would like to be cremated with half my ashes scattered in the backyard, and half in an urn in the family mausoleum. That way, I can always be at home* and with my family at the same time.


*I'll probably be the last in my family to live in our home of almost 60 years.

I don't want to be buried. The thought of being underground forever freaks me out. I rather be cremated and want my ashes to be scattered in different Beatles related places, that would be cool haha.

I was thinking about leaving your urn in the trunk of the car for a few weeks. At least until a better idea comes along.
