I work as the Office Manager for a church. One of the functions of my job is help plan and prepare for funerals. We have three in the next week. Every time we have one, I think about what I would want and what my family would want or be able to handle. Morbid...maybe. But, I think it is important to plan in advance. Anyway...I was wondering what other people thought about what they would want. Cremation or burial? Religious service? Good old fashioned wake? Any cultural or religious aspects to be observed? I want a cremation, to have the service at my church, I want the song "Seasons of Love", I would love to have my ashes scattered in a redwood forest or urn buried under a redwood tree (though for my husband's sake I have agreed to do the whole headstone thing). Any one like to share?
