What would people say about you at your funeral?


Wow. That’s one hell of a question. I would like to think that there would be a lot of people at my funeral. Family, friends, people I’ve worked with and maybe even a patient or too. It’s nice to think that I would be missed. However, the funeral isn’t really about me. Funerals are a way to help those left behind in their grieving process. So, ultimately, I’d want them to do and say whatever helped them process my death. And if that means avoiding the funeral, that’s ok too. It’s not like I’ll be around to get offended 😛 As far as what people will be saying about me? Hell, I dunno! I’d like to believe that people would have nice things to say about me; now and after I am gone. I’d like to think that even the people who dislike me would speak with respect. But I honestly have no idea what anyone will say when I am gone. I think it matters more what they are saying while I’m still here.

  2. I’m pretty sure that at my funeral, as people are filing past my casket, the comment most heard will be something like, “She looks so natural and life-like… way too much makeup, as usual.”
