I might want my spirit to drift around the sanctuary to note who came and who didn't. That way, I'd know who I would haunt.

Damn, cpg, I was hoping you weren't "spiritual."

Army, so if i die in the next two years there will be a couple of hundred. After that?... couple of dozen maybe.

Can't say i care really, not like i'm going to be around to notice.

Never thought about it. However there was a person on another forum on CD who did. Well sort of.

He faked his own death! He had his "wife" post to say that he was in a car accident and had been killed. People posted a stream of condolences to the "bereaved widow". Honestly, I'm not sure if he was a man or a woman. If there was a wife, or if HE was the wife.

About six moths later, in the midst of a heated argument, he reappeared saying that he was never killed.

He did get to see how many people were sad about his demise by this stunt, and was able to see how loved he was.

I think it was pretty sick.

Not going to have a funeral......to me it is a waste of money.

I am being cremated, having my ashes mixed with the ashes of my pets....and then unceremoniously buried in the plot I own next to my mother, with a small, flat stone to mark my grave.

The bulk of my estate is going to a charity......so.....this means more money to do good things instead of being wasted on "bells and whistles".

Well... I personally don't want a funeral. But I'm leaving whatever happens to me when I die, up to my husband. If he finds more peace burying me, then he can bury me and find the money to waste on a coffin. His choice; I won't care. As for people showing up, again, I wouldn't care. I don't understand funerals and who they're benefiting. My only request, however, would be that people wear whatever they want. I don't understand the notion that everyone is suppose to wear black - it's stupid. I may have died, and I understand "black signifies death", but please, it's just a color. Wear your PJs then go home and cry and sleep.

That is pretty sick. I remember there being a movie with a plot like that too... I can't remember the name of it. I also find it harsh that people only seem to care more about people once they find out they're dead or lost someone. I understand people seem to find empathy towards death more than empathy for anything else in the human feelings box, but I find that pretty sad.
