ok i was hanging out at another site and the topic was.

"How'd you like your funeral to be?" there was the obligitory viking funeral of corse who wouldnt want to go out like that?

but i got to thinking a bit and other than the cheapest way possible.
the idea of a traditional irish wake or new orleans funeral sounds like the way to go.

how bout you guys?

I would like to be cremated, then have my ashes sprinkled on the heads of people I didnt like

EXPENSIVE

i wanna be buried in my land rover defender 90 with all my guns in the back. i'd give them to my nephew but he gets everything he's ever wanted just handed to him. great kid but hasn't the slightest clue about value.

Cremated, take me on a roller coaster ride and a big party.

Hopefully have some folks I know call a truce to their feudin' over my ashes.

Sprinkle me over the ocean or mountains, don't really care.

Oh, whoever gets my guns better appreciate the hell out of them too!!

Short, sweet, to the point.

I didn't live in a $5000 bed when I was alive, so my will explicitly states:

Episcopal mass in the nearest church,

Followed by Cremation

Followed by burial in family plot - Evergreen CO. with simple name marker.

I remember a story i read online. Guy in england lieks to hunt. dies, gets cremated, and the remains are loaded in shotgun shells, along with normal shot.

Then a group of his friends and family took him on one last hunt.

They even had a list of all the game taken on that last hunt.

Far off into the distant future, and very frugal. Cremated, no plot.

Pine box. If in service, where I fell. If in the US, in the mountains.

IM me the grid coordinates! I'd really like a reasonably priced Defender 90!!

Creamated and throw my ashes on the beach down at Pere Marquett State Park... right where the young gals place their beach blankets.

I agree with AR10 and Armalite Fan. I want mine to be as late as possible, that's all I care about. You can wrap me in a sheet and throw me in the nearest gravel pit, for all I care, I just want to live to a ripe old age. I'm thinking anywhere from 95 to 110 years would be good for starters.

If that's not possible, then I want my rotting corpse to be FedEx'd to someone I really don't like.

My wife knows that I want a large party to be thrown. Othere than that, I want to be cremated. No other preferences, although I think smaller is better.

A good old fashioned Irish wake...a big-ass party.

I may even state that in my will...

I don't want a big fuss, I just want to be cremated and have my ashes spread at Assateague Island.

want my friends and family to place my body in a sitting position facing east on a hugh pile of logs soaked in gasoline at dark, then proceed to drink and party till dawn, then just as the sky starts to turn blue, light my ass up, devide up my gear and shoot up every round of ammo I got and pray that my spirit goes to heaven, then go to where they live and leave my ashes where they lay.
Link Posted: 3/13/2005 2:57:39 PM EDT
If I die early I wanna be buried with two things:

-One of my 1911's, empty, with the slide locked back.
-My sheath for my Ka-Bar, with the knife gone.

You can figure if I go to an early grave, it'd be kicking, screaming, and out of options.

Things like the place and which box wouldn't matter to me, you know, being dead and all.

Either with my ashes blowing in the wind, or just me and the worms.(no need for a box or anything)

Which ever is simplest/cheapest.
Link Posted: 3/13/2005 3:09:21 PM EDT
I told my wife not to claim my body. Identify me, and when they ask where she would like me shipped, tell them it's not her problem. I don't want her wasting money to stick me in the dirt or in a furnace. If they bother her about it she is to say "He was not my property. You can do whatever you want to him. Give him to science or something."

Now that I'm thinking about it a little more, I'll see if I can get shipped to Old_Painless when I'm gone. He can string me up in front of some drywall, and do a real defensive ammunition test. I'm putting it in my will tomorrow.

Load your mags Old_Painless. I'm a heavy drinker with a very fast car.

Just don't let the ponies lick them up

Or you could be buried in one of these, made it myself!



We are currently working on doing this same casket with a camouflaged interior.

If only I were a little better with webpage design I would have the sight up and running.

Willie the Wimp


written by
R. Ellsworth & B. Carter

Willie the Wimp was buried today,
They laid him to rest in a special way.
Sent him off in the finest style
That casket-mobile really drove 'em wild
Southside Chicago will think of him often
Talkin' 'bout Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin,
Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin


That casket, it looked like a fine Seville
He had a vanity license and a Cadillac grille
Willie was propped up in the driver's seat
He had diamonds on his fingers and a smile sweet
Fine red suit had the whole town talkin'
Talkin' 'bout Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin
Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin


Oh, Cadillac to Heaven he was wavin' the banner
He left like he lived, in a lively manner
With a-hundred dollar bills in his fingers tight
He had flowers for wheels and a-flashin' headlights
He been wishin' for wings, no way he was walkin'
Talkin' 'bout Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin
Yeah, Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin...

I have thought out my funeral. I'm only 40 but I know exactly how I want it to be and I've told my family. No, I really have no thoughts of dying, I just have a strong desire to have my funeral the way I want it.

First - regardless of whether I'm hit by a buss tomorrow or die of old age when I'm 90 I do not want people to be sad at my funeral. I realize I have no control over that but I do not want saddening songs sung or mellow dramatic music, hymns or scriptures at my funeral. I would like my funeral to be a celebration of my life, not a mourning of my passing.

I already have my grave. My Grandmother bought it for me when I was 9 [room for the husband too!] it's in my family's cemetary where I have 9 generations of realitives buried there. It's close to where my Grandma is buried.

I want a simple pine box [I will come back and haunt someone if they spend 5K on a stupid casket!] and I do not want to be embalmed [sp?]. That's sick. It's suppose to be ashes to ashes, dust to dust so why pickle me for 100 years?

Lastly I don't want my family as poll barrers. I always felt so bad for my brothers when my Grandmother died. They were so sad [they had a choir singing Ava Maria in latin the entire time] and they had to carry this God awful casket [easily 5 grand] when all they wanted to do is be little boys who missed their grandmother and be hugged by their family. Take the money saved from the stupid casket and hire some strangers to carry me in. I don't weigh that much! Weather permitting a keg would be nice too.

A crowded tearjerker funeral with family and friends playing music I loved, followed by a really good party. The kind of party legends are made of, where crazy shit and scandals happen, with moderate property damage involved (but no one gets hurt), everyone hooks up and gets laid, and hangovers are rough.
Link Posted: 3/13/2005 4:15:39 PM EDT
Tell the folks how I lived my key points of my life. (3 minutes or less!)

Appreciate the folks who came out of respect (2 minutes)

Tell them the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST ( as long as it takes) Because they need to know or If I have not showed them or visited with them about it.

Hope the rest can follow in Christ's ways....

No embalming, but keep me chilled for a day or two for a wake.

<------------- (So I don't look like this guy too soon)

Lots of alcohol and loud music . Plain pine box, or just wrap me in a shroud.

A full-on funeral Mass.

Then plant me deep.
Link Posted: 3/13/2005 4:32:03 PM EDT
A long time off.

Basically, no fuss, maybe cremation and scatter ashes, forget me.
