May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

Well, I just read all the posts on this page regarding what's to be done when you die; every one is very unique in different ways., I love it!
About 5 years I made the arrangements for my Mother's burial; has anyone went through that lately, $10,000 bucks, least expensive, wow...My Dad was just a small fraction of that 35-40 years ago at same cemetery. My Mom had told me that she had everything arranged and not to worry which was something I didn't really want to talk about but knew I had to, and I'm just one out of 5 remaining children, it's amazing what sickness and death do to an already, I don't want to say dysfunctional, I dunno maybe, gosh selfish, self centered siblings. It seems like that Mother's documents disappeared, and that one person never came forward to say, this is what is happening...didn't mean to go off like that, I was the one my mom called on and relied on the most, the only one that could keep it together and still work a full time job, the others retired and just didn't work...
So hearing everyone's plans here gives me some pretty good ideas, I will not put the burden on my two sons.
happy in life and death! angel_not.gif

IrishBeachLassie;

Twenty years ago it cost $10,00.00 to bury my Mother and I freaked when my Dad told me. I've made arrangements with a Funeral Home here in Oakville, $1,500.00 Cremation (all paid for). Stick you in a cardboard coffing and into the oven. Told my Daughters I don't really care what they do with the ashes. Wouldn't mind some being taken to my families home in Scotland and scattered across Loch Awe. Like I said makes no difference to me as I'm long gone by the time they get around to any of it.

Pre-paying mine cost $860.00 as I recall. I too did not want to waste the many thousands for a conventional funeral. The beauty of prepaying a cremation iis that if you are active, you do not have to be concerned about the added expense of returning a body if you expire while on vacation. They "render you down" wherever you die and send you back in a small double wall cardboard box in the back of a UPS truck.

Slàinte,

I personally just want to be cremated and to have my ashes scattered on my rose bushes to kill off the afids! smile.gif

And a nice Irish wake for a send off would be lovely!

QUOTE (Finnegan's wake)
Then Mickey Maloney ducked his head.
When a bottle of whiskey flew at him,
It missed, and falling on the bed.
The liquor scattered over Tim!
Tim revives! See how he rises!
Tim finnegan rising in the bed,
Saying , "Whirling your whiskey around like blazes.
Well Holy Jesus! Do you think I'm dead?"

Do you want a second chance too? laugh.gif

Best regards
Ingo

i want to be laid out and burned with all those who i cared for standing by letting the wind blow my ashes to the ends of the world. however i would also like to have one of those little buildings but i want two knights guarding the entrence and sitting on a stone throne will be a carving of myself and it will hold my sword at the side so people have a place to go to remember me by. a little odd but it something i have thought about before. would be really cool to have the king say something like a motion sensor just for fun.
