Funeral Arrangements

Ha! If your reading this you might be wondering "who died?". Well, no one yet. Call me morbid but as I was trying sleep last night all I could think about was what would my funeral be like. I have always known that I wanted my funeral to different from a traditional funeral.
First and most importantly there will be NO open casket, if any casket at all. If it's possible all of my organs will be donated, EVERYTHING even my skin! I won't need any of it anyway. Aren't we promised a new body??? Heck Yes! I do want, lovely pictures of me and my family all around.
Second, no one is wearing black! Don't get me wrong, I love the color black. Its slimming! But not at my funeral, only bright colors! Everyone is to wear their favorite color.
Third, no crying people! I don't want sob stories, only fun stories of my past. I'm sure Doug can come up with something funny, he's so witty.
Fourth, Instead of a grave site afterwards I would prefer a reception. One with a chocolate fountain and fresh stawberries and bananas to dip into. With all of my favorite foods! We might need to get this catered.
Fithe, I want people to bring there kids with them. I also want every child to leave with a balloon and a goodie bag. And the balloons should be primary colors. There my favorite.

SO... That's about it!

Oh my gosh - i LOVE this because I told charlie if he has an open casket for me i will haunt him forever.
i also feel if he does this (over my dead body) i better at least have some "bubba teeth" hanging out.
i want my favorite music played... no sad nothings...
i want NO BLACK as well!
I love the kid idea!:)

My name is Jenna and i came across your site. Asher, Abraham and Asa are precious gifts and special earthly angels. It is great to hear that Asher excepts and treats kids with special needs, just like he is and that he treats them no different than he treats his brother's. Not all young kids treat everyone equally and it is nice to see that. I was born with a rare life threatening disease, developmental delays, 12 other diagnosis, and I have been treated differentaly than other typical kids by other typical kids too. Abraham is a courageous,strong and determined fighter. he is a brave warrior, smilen champ and an inspirational hero. I love it when people sign my guestbook.
