“LIfe’s Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely,
in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways,
totally worn out, shouting “Holy #, what a ride!”
– Hunter S Thompson
I saw someone here on ATS has that in their signature too!
I love anything unconventional,
where people aren't afraid to defy the usual custom!
When our neighbor, who didn't like anything formal, died way too young,
his pall bearers wore blue jeans & white t-shirts!!!
When they came into the church, walking beside the casket,
no one in the church could keep from laughing...priceless!!!
My parents both died unexpectedly, of natural causes,
two & a half days apart.
When they were laid out, Dad had this big grin on his face!
The only dead person that I ever saw smiling!
Everyone said it was because Mom wouldn't leave without Dad!
However I go, I want it to be unusual & memorable!!!
Preferably, with people smiling & saying "She would!!!"
