No time soon, hopefully, but I would like Trey Anastasio's "At the Gazebo" played at my funeral. Several close to me have been so instructed.

my younger sis is wicked talented at the flute, she's a music major at DePaul university and plays w/ the chicago symph orchestra occasionally. i think every person in our family has reserved her for future weddings and funerals. my grandparents actually told her to practice a certain song, so when the time comes, she'll be ready.

It has always seemed funny to me how people (myself included for sure) have all these hopes and dreams of how their last day above ground will be. For me it is one hell of a party :woohoo: :friday:

I don't want anybody to be sad, just have a party and hopefully I died having fun.

There's Never Been any Reason, Head East. Parachute, Altitude and a big ooomph! :D Go quick and get a good look at the blue marble one last time! My children will hopefully be very successful and late in years. I am not a Sky Diver but if I live long enough (beyond my years) I would like to do it once, ha ha. :woohoo:

jimmer- mine had hers planned out, too. We didn't find her plans until right at the end of actually making the arrangements and while we were sitting there amazed that she wrote everything down, we realized that we wouldn't need to change anything. Flowers, music, time of day, where to have the lunch after- you name it, we already had it taken care of, to the letter.

She had red hair, what can I say? Redheaded women like to be in charge and apparently, it doesn't matter to them whether they're alive or not.

I'm still waiting to find an envelope with her handwriting on it so I can open it and it'll say "Don't even think about it!".

My dad planned everything except the menu at the party he wanted afterwords. Dictated to my sister durring the last week he was with alive.
Even called the people he wanted to sing at his funeral himself. A brave soul but he new he could not beat the cancer this last time.

I would rather my kids play at my funeral than me play at theirs. No parent wants to outlive their children.

I want Garth Brook's, "The River" played at mine, then sprinkle some of my ashes on the boat ramp, so everyone will back over my azz every time they put their boats in the water and the rest at Wal-Mart, so my wife will come visit me 4 times a week!!

Told my kids just joking with them that I wanted "Spirit in the Sky" played at mine the original version by Norman Greenbaum and they remind me of that every once and a while. The more I think about it though the more it's not such a joke, I really like the song! Guess I'll never know.

i fancy "come on baby light my fire" by THE DOORS...or "FIRE" by the CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN........assuming i was being cremated.............but i fancy a bit of cyrogenics


The last song would have to be JERUSALEM ,by WILLIAM BLAKE

"And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green
And was the holy lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen

And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills
And was Jerusalem builded there
Among those dark Satanic mills

Bring me my bow (my bow) of burning gold
Bring me my arrows of desire
Bring me my spears o'clouds unfold
Bring me my chariot of fire

I will not cease from mental fight
Nor shall my (my) sword sleep in hand
'Til we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land
'Til we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land

England

A real "hair-standing-on-the-back-of-your-neck-epic"


i can wait another 80 or so yrs tho:cool:
