This is disturbing, but oh well!

My sister is having heart surgery in just a little bit, so she has had some posts lately on her blog about dying... I know, your first reaction is that's morbid. However, I have had this conversation with some of you before, and you have even told me requests for your funerals. Not to mention, a while ago my sister-in-laws sister died at a young age, and my sister-in-law found it very comforting that her sister had shared some of her wishes with her before she died. (Not knowing she would actually die at a young age - her death was completely unexpected).

SO, here are some of my dying wishes (And no I do not plan on dying any time soon, but just in case...)
  • Steve is allowed to remarry, but she's got to be a good mom and a lousy wife...
  • Someone's got to teach Steve how to do the girl's hair because I can't stand messy hair.
  • I want fun music at my funeral, not depressing songs. There is to be NO singing of the song "Each Life that Touches Ours for Good." Because that is downright depressing. (I would even love it if my current VT's wouldn't mind playing the piano and singing something, but I won't cry if you don't want to, I wouldn't either...)
  • My brothers and sisters can fight over who talks at my funeral (or they all can), but they get to do it - I would hope Jim would be HAPPY to.
  • I get burried next to my baby. Then Steve next to me and if he ever got married again, she could go on the other side.

I think that is about it. I don't really care much about the rest. It's all depressing to think about, but this way, there is no confusion, no fighting and no questions. I'm just sayin' - and hope to never bring it up agiain.

"lousy wife"...what exactly do you mean by that?

That settles it....James is speaking. Not me. I wouldn't speak anyway, I would just get up and blubber. But, don't die for a LONG time.

I'd love to. Just tell me when.

I hope your sister is ok. That is very scary.

I tell Jefe all the time that he has to get remarried. She should be good mom, but she has to be fatter than me.

I want 1 talk on the plan of salvation and then I want everyone to go back to my house and have a party. I want them to spend the remainder of the day laughing at all the stupid stuff I have done. And lets be honest, there is a ton of it.

It's funny, I think more about the event of my death instead of my funeral. I figure, I won't be there anyway, so who cares? But, I would play/sing at your funeral but it would be way too sad. Maybe if you were like 107 when you die, and I was still around, if my arthritic fingers would let me still, I'd do it for you.

p.s. I also want C to get married. He says he'll probably just marry the nanny cuz she'll be good with kids, and nannies are usually pretty hot. I hope he gets Nanny Mcphee...

In case the need arises, Dad and I don't want to have a funeral (too hard to think of something nice to say), but we are all for a family party. Who's going to make the rolls? Andrea can make the jello salad with angel food cake in it. James doesn't even have to talk! On second thought, let's just have the family party and invite us too!!! How about the 25th? I'm free.
