What would you take with you to the "afterlife" if you could?


There are many cultures around the world that prepare the dead for "crossing over to the afterlife". The Egyptians were most famous for entombing objects along with their dead, even going so far as to locking up their slaves with them to help them in the other world. Funeral directors often get requests to put tokens or objects into caskets to accompany the dead on their journeys. What would you take with you to the "afterlife" if you could?

    You could load them on to a smart phone and then if you wake up, you can also call for help! Earbuds or headset?

    I am looking at more concrete things, not "memories", you can't leave those behind, right? What is something to put in your casket?

    My mom asked for a kitten while on her death bed. I put a Ty beanie cat into her casket. She always loved cats.
