    If I may categorize such a question, this will be classified in the "ambivalent to answer" question. The same goes for the questions, "how will you be remembered after you die" and "what would your friends and families say as eulogy at your... read more

    Zero. Since I am AMBASSADOR BUTLER I will conduct my funeral service now to be used in the future when I die and these words that will be read in celebration and victory: " AMBASSADOR BUTLER knew and  walked with GOD moment by moment and is now in that specially prepared place that GOD prepared for him only and on August 1, 1982 A.D. a Sunday morning GOD shown him in a vision of the other side of death. GLORY to GOD." AMEN AMEN AMEN. The funeral service is over now for Ambassador Butler and I hope that you end up in the place that you want to be in when you die and crossover to the other side of death. Peace to everyone.

    Quite honestly, I have always thought funerals were a strange practice and more for the living.  I do not want a funeral, just cremation and my family saying goodbye.

    It doesn't matter; what matters is where I'll end up.

    After some consideration, I think I'm just going to wait and see.

    At minimum will be 50 as counting the family members and cousins. There will be more as this excludes friends, relatives, etc.

    What does it matter really ? Anyway there would definitely be the members of my  family, brothers, sisters, their families, my other relatives and friends I love... oh I just can't guess....  the total number should be over one hundred minimum.

    I guess who ever feels they need to show up.  Hopefully, they will console the man of my dreams, because he will need a lot of hugs and emotional support.  I worry more for him, than I do for myself.

    This depend upon our past work. It is one type of return what I paid to society.

    I've noticed that people who are wealthy tend to have a lot of people at their funerals. Poor slobs like me tend not to have as many. I probably won't have many for reasons other than money, though.

    Zero I hope. I don't want a funeral, I want a remembrance. I want people who knew me to gather round and share memories of times they spent with me. I want them to laugh, and be happy that I was part of their lives. I want them to tell the jokes that we always tell when we are together and bond with each other.

    I also want to have my ashes spread in Yosemite National Park, which might be illegal. If this is the case, I would like all who attend to divide the ashes between them and casually dropped them as they are walking around the park.

    hmmmm not sure of the total that will attend, but im sure there will be quite a few who "wanted to be there" but didn't show up :-)  --- sad depressing question :-(

    I hope not too many. I only want to be remembered by a few. My exboyfriends (Billy, Ryan, and Blake). My brother, mother, father, and sister. My cousins (Taylor, Logan, Ken, Nolan). And my boyfriend, David, along with his mother, Denise.

    Well, I will certainly be in attendance. The rest of the guest list is tentative. My wife will probably outlive me, so I suppose she will be there and have to figure out what kind of ceremony to have for an atheist.

    I want a private funeral, so my five children and my husband if I have one that is it. Other than the folks that handle the funeral.

    It should be  the biggest party ever in my town on that day.

    People who never cares me, can remember my death day through that party
