The Common Room / Re: Funeral - No mourning or flowers.
« on: Tuesday 10 July 18 09:12 BST (UK)  »
A lot of people choose not to have funerals these days!  I would like to have my "funeral" before I die, when I can hear all the wonderful things my family and friends are going to say about me! 😜😜 Then we can all sit around, have a few wines, tell our stories and say our goodbyes!

Seriously though, I will be having a private family and friends only funeral, I have everything all organised, Funeral Insurance, the Church readings, some photo's, the music, the invitations, what I want to wear, (which is my all time favourite dress), and a few personal things I want to take with me in my coffin!  I will be cremated! My ashes are to be scattered in a river which actually flows through all the places I have lived and loved since I was a child! I will end up in a harbour where I used to swim and waterski! 

Oops - I forgot to add  - flowers for both events!

Keith, every photo that our Restorers so kindly fix and enhance is a miracle!  Such clever people, for whom I have the highest admiration and respect!  👍👍👍👏👏😄😄

I wonder how they would baptise ashes!  Or bodies??  I can't see them digging up zillions of graves all around the world to do their "baptism"!   ??? ;D

I don't think we should worry too much about being baptised after death by the Morman Church! I'm sure God would not go along with a totally unecessary second baptism if one has already been baptised into their own Christian faith, and one that has been made with their own or their family/s choice or permission and blessing! 

He's the Big Boss after all, and has known us since we were conceived!!  💞💞👍👍

Yes Xin, I've often wondered if she was supposed to have gone to Australia with him, and if their son and his family would still have emigrated from London to the USA if she hadn't died!

Oh well, I'm sure we will all have lots of questions to ask our ancestors when we (hopefully) eventually meet them "upstairs" 🙏🙏  ??? 🤔🤔🤔

Mmm ... I wonder if they have Wifi up there??  Just think of the stories we could add to our trees!! 🤗🤗🤗👏
