What kind of Funeral do you want?

Funerals today cost more than ever, just the casket can cost many thousands of dollars and you have to deal with plots & the like.

Personally, when it's time for MY funeral I'm not going to care whether my funeral costs $25k or $25 since I'll like be DEAD!

I decided a long time ago I want no more than is absoultely necessary spent to put me in the ground for the worms to eat.

If I can get a plain pine box with no lining or finish, great.

I told my wife to only buy a couple flower arrangements so people won't get all freaked out at the funeral, otherwise I wouldn't need ANY flowers.

Anything else that can be done to save money, I want it. Really do you NEED to be embalmed? Since I'm Jewish I'll be in the ground in 3 days so I shouldn't smell too bad before then.

Good question. My grandfather recently passed, and he was in the Navy. He got shipped to the Navy where he was creamated then spread at sea. Interestingly enough, my cousin(in the service too) won an appeal to be able to do the ceremony at sea. He brought the remains on his ship when they set sail and took part in the ceremony at sea. I'm not sure what I would want. Something cheap. I just want everyone to throw a freakin party afterwards.

cheap is good. money should be spent on the living and hopefully i've incurred enough bad experiences by then that people will enjoy the little "recollection of his life" that occurs at the after funeral PARTY!

er... but hopefully not of the "ding-dong the witch is dead sort"

I want a wake, the classic Irish party to celebrate the life of the deceased. I want my friends to get good and trashed and talk about my hilarious (if stupid, they're always stupid somehow) exploits in loud voices, while my family pretends they're not laughing. Oh, and I want at least two of my friends to have drunken sex in some room, so they have one more happy memory caused by me.
