There were 4 people at my wedding, including my husband and myself. Two of those people are currently dead and at my funeral I'll also be dead leaving one person to attend my funeral and I hope she doesn't hear about it until it's over. I've prearranged everything and there will be no funeral, just a direct cremation with a promise from one friend that she will scatter my ashes where my husband's are. Simple, efficient, and no padding the pockets of third party leeches--for either occasion.
Hi Cissy! ....you are prepared and self sufficient....you are "complete". I don't know what it must have taken you emotionally to get to this place of resolution. I, however, can't help but admire your strength and pragmatism. Me? Danceparty@funeral
Wedding! We had a destination wedding and lots of people couldn't make it. I'm also not someone who was ever wedding crazy, and I would have been happy getting married in my backyard with just our parents and daughter present.
I've been to funerals where barely anyone shows up and I find it heartbreaking.
This hypohtetical because a number of people DID come to my wife and my wedding 56 years ago. I would like to think that even more would attend my funeral.
Because to me, it would be an indication - even though I might not be there to witness it - that I've led such a good life, done many good things and made lots of people happy to the point that they felt, deep down, that they wanted to say 'goodbye' to a good guy.
