    I really don't care as long as it is cheap and is not a financial burden to my children.

    I've often thought that I would like to donate my body to science as a cadaver but that would be up to my family and if they were okay with that.

    It is actually really hard to do this. There are lots of things that rule people out. Amazingly. When consider uni's often share body parts.

    I have been ruled out due to my tummy op.

    All i know is that i plan on being cremated and DS carrying me around in life. We have discussed it before as i work in an industry where death is it. DS asks most days if anyone has died and i tell him the truth. He hasnt asked what the bodies are like yet. One day that will come up.

    Havent put too much thought into dying. Every now and again i ponder it. Who? When? It does scare me.

    Geez I hope I get to see my funeral. I'd love to see who comes and who doesn't. I think I'd be surprised by the turnout! I'm a pretty cool chick and most people love me...I think!!

    I want the service to be performed by my priest from when I was growing up or the priest from our parish.

    I want The Dance and The River by Garth Brooks played during the service.

    I want to be cremated but don't want my coffin to be taken away until everyone has gone.

    XH and XFIL are not welcome nor are any B&S Utes....

    I haven't put too much thought into my own funeral. I would like to be cremated though.
    I planned my mums funeral with her and I hope we executed it just like she wanted it. I swore at a priest to get the music she wanted so she better have been watching and enjoying it!

    I want it to be as inexpensive as possible, not religious in the slightest, and I will be donating all organs. I originally wanted to be buried in an environmentally friendly box (cardboard, wicker, bamboo, or wool), but it costs so much more to be buried than cremated, so cremated it is.

    They are 2 of my most favourite songs! Love a bit (or a lot) of Garth!

    I want to be cremated, I didn't, but Mum was cremated 2 weeks and 2 days ago and I want to go to the same Rose Garden that she will be in with my Grandparents, so cremation it is.

    I want the cheapest casket available, Mums funeral was free, but the casket she had was worth a few grand from memory and just got burnt. It's insane. I'd be happy to be cremated in our OTTO bin.

    I want whatever songs the kids pick, I will leave it all up to them, I just want it done cheaply. I want it to be a happy day, my family know how lost I am without my Mum so hopefully they will be happy I am with her again. I look forward to being with her.
