If I were to have a funeral I think that would be cool. As it is, I have strict orders not to have a funeral at all. They are torture, in my opinion. Buy a keg and have a celebration of my life in the Irish tradition.
I've always wanted a new Orleans funeral . With Treme becoming popular ,at least my friends know what I'm talking about now. I have no direct next of kin . Distant cousins .
I'm very close to some of my friends,and I told them,if there aren't a bunch of black guys from NO,playing horns in front of my casket ,I will be seriously pissed off.
And strict orders ? Someone's telling you how to do your own death ?
Funerals are for the living . It's to mourn ,tell stories ,celebrate who you are . That's not fair . If you want a kegger for your day,DO IT !
Our friend john ,wanted his ashes sprinkled on Kurt weils grave.
We took him,all the way up to this cemetery somewhere upstate ,and danced around Kurt weils grave .
We took some of John's ashes in turns ,with big spoons ,and sprinkled them ,where he wanted to be sprinkled .
Yes ,I am serious .
If people love you,they do it,because its what you wanted .
