I want either "The Ghost of You" or "Moonlight Sonata" to start playing.
Would that be the Good Charlotte song or the My Chemical Romance song?  Just asking for clarity.

Me, I would want either "Ding, Dong the Witch is Dead," Evanesence's "My Immortal" or Korn's "Thoughtless" to play at my funeral (which one I haven't decided yet)

I have always been fond of this poem, found on a tombstone in Scotland:

Remember, friend, as you pass by,
As you are now, so once was I.
As I am now, you too shall be;
Prepare, therefore, to follow me.


I love that! I even quoted it as an away message on aim,lol.

Bright Blessings.

LOL--"Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead" would be funny! (Actually would be really apropos for me--I played Evillene in The Wiz during Junior Year of HS...*adds to ideas pile*). I love "My Immortal" as well.

Inspired by Scott Adams, this is a bit different than the one he's doing right now on his blog.

What do you want people to say about you when you're gone? Or what would you like etched on your tombstone?

"I told you I'd do it even if it killed me..."

But it's going on a plaque.  There is no way on earth any bugger is burying me, I'm claustrophic and terrified of being buried alive.  At least with cremation you're guaranteed to be dead before everyone leaves for the party afterwards...

As for music.  At the service it has to be Mad World - Gary Jules.  But I have a whole list of songs I want played at the party later (yes, I've already compiled it, well, up to this point in my life at least).  Everyone who knows me will know the meaning behind at least one or two of them and it should induce a few fond tears and some fits of giggles, hopefully Grin

My brother wants his party before the cremation.  He wants glasses of champagne stood on his coffin and a sign saying "the drinks are on me!" lol.  So I may nick that idea from him too.

I dunno.  What people say about me and think about me are usually so different from what I actually am; I leave them to write what they need to believe.

Decorate this dark ground deeply,
in blossoms bright, and creepers sweetly.

Neath the moss and loam I lay,
still nearby, yet so far away.

Haunt me not with tears and woe,
but remember the times when we would go-

refracted reflections are ours to keep
as through eternity we sleep.

I'm gonna tell my son to join a circus so that death is cheap
And games are just another way of life

Because for every truth there are half a million lies
And I'm gonna lock my son up in a tower
Till he learns to let his hair down far enough to climb outside.

I had the Desiderata on my wall when I was a teen. Some days, it was the only thing that kept me from going mad.


There was an "anti" version of that that I loved.

No tombstone for me...ashes spread and all of me gone...like dust motes in sunlight, thank you.

I don't believe in leaving things unsaid in my life to be engraved anywhere.

FOUND ON REAL HEADSTONES


A Fishermans style epitaph

Mother are you gone forever,
to that land so bright and fair?
While your children weep unstopping
can you hear them, do you care?

and from the tomb of the bard,

Good friend for Jesus sake forbeare,
To dig the dust enclosed here.
Blessed be the man that spares these stones,
And cursed be he that moves my bones.

Sorry, missed this the first time 'round...

Or what would you like etched on your tombstone?

As with many others I would prefer cremation once I'm done with this physical form (not before then!).  If I were to choose a marker inscription there are two I would consider at this point:

For humor - "Still vacant"

To the waters and the wild
With a fairy hand in hand
For the world's more full of weeping
