I also wondered if that would be weird. I think I'll have music played at the end of the service and tell people to dance their way out of the church -- you know, "dance like nobody's watching". I'd have to leave instructions to my best friends to get it started.
Has anyone written their obit yet?
No, I haven't written an obit...the thought actually hadn't occurred to me. I HAVE told my sisters and best friends to please make absolutely sure that no obituary contains anything like the phrase "she lost her long battle with cancer" or "after a long fight, she succumbed to cancer." That makes me a loser and cancer a winner. And I will never concede that, for it is not true. A simple "she died of advanced rectal cancer" or something like that is all that is needed as explanation.
