Anyone here made any funeral arrangements? Not done so here. However, I would rather hope that - when I eventaully die - people don't spend my time mourning for me, but instead celebrate myself and my life. That's one thing I really don't understand about funerals - it's sad that someone loved has gone. But I sincerely hope there'll be laughter at my funeral. So - bright colours - a few jokes - and a celebration of a life lived. No tears please - as much as possible, anyway. Anyone think I'm being too against the grain - even insensitive? Or have funerals simply gone in the wrong direction? Is there any particular way you would actually like your own funeral conducted?
