“If you knew when you were going to die and you had to plan your own funeral, what type of flowers would you choose? What songs would you choose?”
I don't want to have a big funeral. For me, I would prefer that my family saves the money and uses it toward their living expenses. I do want my parents, brother, children, and husband to be able to say good-bye to me, though, if that is what they want. A very small, private ceremony that lasts no more than 30 minutes would be perfect. Then they should all go have lunch and start finding ways to be happy.
I would not want my family to spend money on flowers. If they insist, they should bring a couple of sunflowers. Since I didn't care for cut flowers in my life, though, I don't think they are a necessary expense after I am gone.
As far as music, I would like to have "Wind Beneath My Wings- Bette Midler," "In My Daughter's Eyes- Martina McBride,"On the Side of Angels- LeAnn Rimes," and "I Hope You Dance- Lee Ann Womack" played. Interestingly, this is the same line-up (except for the Martina McBride song because we didn't have daughters then) as what I wanted played at my wedding. Does anyone find that disturbing?
