A friend of ours died recently. We just got the invitation to the "Celebration of his Life": A big party with a New Orleans jazz band, culminating with a fireworks display where they shoot his ashes into the sky in a big bottle-rocket.
I like that - "A Celebration of Life". A person is not defined by the fact that he died. I hate observing the day of a person's death. Why not focus on what they did while they're alive? Death was not their greatest accomplishment!
Exactly. Most people slave away for fifty weeks a year so they can spend two weeks where I live.
ME TO, They think I have it made.. mebbie so... we might want to be taken to town for some city food instead of this country cookin all the time. Just spread my ashes in the corn field , have a beer or two , a picknick, then foreget all about me..
