An Artistic Farewell . . . .

Political Funerals . . . . .

So many people die who are radically political in their nature. Why not send them off with a mock election, or series of elections? At the service, congregants and guests could vote on issues such as, "Which Way Will He Go, Down or Up?" Another vote to be taken could be, "Of the following three... Sign in to see full entry.

COSTCO Caskets
