Dancin_In_Anson: The only thing that I ask is that I be cremated (they won't let me be dumped in my pasture for the birds of the air and the beasts of the field to dispose of me) and do with my ashes as they see fit and that any money that would have been spent on a funeral be spent on BBQ and beer for any and all who wish to continue the fun life I have led (Fark is invited).

yeah man same here.  cremate me, scatter me in the pacific, my backyard, the hikes we've done, hopefully the irish shore....and at the risk of sounding like a farkstick, i've asked that in the event i paste without knowing it, that my wife send out a "hey, this is ricky the penguin's wife, dude pasted yesterday, so....yeah.  just letting you guys know!" thread.

"Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" by Elton John
"This Woman's Work"(even though i'm not a woman), "Night of the Swallow" and "Cloudbusting" by Kate Bush

"Secret Journey" by The Police
"Faithfully" by Journey
"Save A Prayer" by Duran Duran
"Happy Phantom", "China", and "Winter" by Tori Amos
"White and Nerdy" by Weird Al
"Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds, because I want to make everyone at my funeral remember that Futurama episode and cry like a spoiled 16 year old girl that got the wrong colored Escalade for her Sweet Sixteen.

I don't want a funeral.  Friends & rels can do as they wish to remember, celebrate or otherwise mark my passing.  But no money wasted on a "funeral"; the cheapest coffin going, because I'm assuming a box of some sort is required.  Absolutely no "visitation" & associated nonsense, swift cremation & scatter me  - preferably somewhere pretty - but wherever is convenient for them will do.
