It doesn't really matter we're probably just going to sleep through the whole thing anyhow

I too wanted to slip of quietly but was reminded by friends that a memorial service would be for them not me. So I finally wrote down a few tunes and ba!sically said that I didn't thinks I would stop by and go for it.
I have paid up front for my cremation and do sometimes think about burning vs dirt but know we are running out of places to bury folks in my area and if I can get my "body" out of the equation I am okay.
I have been easing Steven Levine's book A year to live and find it very comforting. Sorry meds are kicking in and I am beginning to ramble.
Peace to all

Step One-Memorial service where a slide show of me with my husband and daughters and friends will be played while the saddest, most tear-jerkiest songs I can find are playing in the background, songs sad enough to make even my witchy sister-in-laws who have treated me like dirt for years burst into sobbing messes. That will be followed by a reading of a heart-wrenching letter I write that will cause everyone in the place to use up all their tissues and be forced to wipe their eyes and noses on their dress clothes or on those of the person next to them.
Step Two-My body will lay in state at my home for two weeks during which time my family will poke me with something sharp every hour just to make absolutely sure I am really, truly dead.
Step Three-Once it is ascertained that I am absolutely, positively dead and not just in a very deep sleep, I want to be cremated and have my ashes sprinkled in the woods on our property in NE PA. I'd like my family and a few friends to pack a picnic lunch, the way we have many times before, and sit on a blanket and share stories about me that make them smile or laugh. When they are done, one last toast with a nice glass of wine and then sprinkle me into the wind.
(I'm just joking about steps one and two. I really only want step three.)

I think this is why I want to slip out the back door and Voxx wants a huge party!
You tapped in on it, CR, we are who we are...

Yes Kenny is true .... Butt it still raised a smile (much needed this week as stressing to the max about scans next week)
I am one of those pain in the ass types that always has to have the last say hence writing my own eulogy
