Funeral wish

Many modern-day death announcements says something to the effect of "in lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to...". I don't want that at my funeral. I want the flowers. It'll be the only time I will have every received them.

Sorry you have felt unloved in your life

I send you, and all those in this world having a hard time today, love and positivity. My greatest funeral wish is my inner-life be accomplished enough in the curriculum of this dimension, that when i reach the other side; the ancestors, angels (or whatever anthropomorphic handle we presently put on the beyond the beyond) will say to me: "Welcome home son, You did well." :-)

You'll actually have people show up,and want to bring flowers?
That's a foreign concept to me...

Think flowers look best living on the side of the road. Not wilting next to my dead and gone body.
The body is just a meare vehicle for the soul. The true essence of you!
Funerals are for the living, the dead are already gone and living the Vita Loco on some other plane of existance.
Looking down maybe thinking.
" Dam they killed all those beautiful flowers and nobody bloody showed, what a waste".
Should have left them in a field somewhere, for everyone to enjoy:)

Louis (supposedly) said it best: "Après moi, le déluge."
Though I may be a water sign, I'd much rather fire. Whenever I see a hysterical headline about end-of-days asteroid strikes or supervolcanoes, it makes me smile.
Bring on the wrath of heaven. Or earth. What's that? Both, at the same time? Oh, YES, please!
Fireflowers, pyroclastic flows, shockwaves and towering impact clouds are the festive, apocalyptic ambience I want for my extinction. Set to a wideband broadcast of the 1812 Overture, or maybe Flux Pavilion's "I Can't Stop".
When normal people see barbarity, death and horror, they're appalled and dismayed. I just think, "Check, please..." And everyone I care about is just as fatalistic. Yeah, not an isolated case. Be with that...
Funerals. Ha.

Being dead is likely to dull your awareness of your surroundings.

Set up an account with the local florist to send you flowers every month. Learn to love yourself and don't wait until you die to do it.
