Pre-Death Request Kits

Those who know of eledrly or ill people, or even accident-prone people, or people in high-risk professions, should get and submit Pre-Death Request Kits (PDRK) which are designed to tell the person at risk for croaking what exactly it is that you want from their estate when they die.

Happy Funerals . . . .

Just like fast food places have Happy Meals... Funeral Homes could offer Happy Funerals to give to the kids of the deceased. Since the parents got a full-priced funeral, the Happy Funeral would be a discount funeral to be tucked away until needed, hopefully 70 or 80 years up the time line. Casket...

Cookies of the Dead . . . . .

I've seen cookie places at malls that will decorate cookies to commemorate certain events. Why not bake cookies that have the profile of the deceased and serve them at the memorial service? The kids would love it, and I can think of few honors that compare with leaving this earth as a delicious... Sign in to see full entry.

Funeral in the Round (in reverse). . . .

Most of us have seen "theater in the round," with seats surrounding at least three sides of the stage. Why not have the reverse for a funeral, with the "guest of honor" and the fammily and friends of the deceased in the center of a room with a surrounding panorama of photos, videos, artwork, and...

Scents of a Funeral . . . .

Some of you may be put off by this suggestion. Each of us has a distinct, shall we say, essence? We share that essence most often after beans and beer, pizza and beer, cabbage rolls, and... well, you get the idea. But to let that scent waft throughout the room during the memorial would be one last... Sign in to see full entry.

Symbolic Gestures at a Funeral

Sometimes words are just not enough, particularly at a funeral when emotions are tender and feelings are easily bruised. Why not have a set of symbols to aid in communication: Those who are unhappy should wear Sombreros to signify their Somber attitude Those who do no know the deceased well, or who...

Spin the Corpse

For a spouse losing a marriage partner, there are some lonely days and nights ahead. Why not let the deceased spouse help choose a new mate for the spouse left behind? Let's use a widow as an example: Her husband dies, leaving her alone. At the funeral, the casket is placed on a "Merry-Go-Round"... Sign in to see full entry.

My favorite Old Movies are Musicals . . . .

Wouldn't it be great if a funeral were to be produced like an old-time musical, complete with singers and dancers depicting the life and times of the deceased? Friends with talent could write the music and songs and connecting dialog to be performed during the memorial service. It could add needed... Sign in to see full entry.

Funeral Souvenirs

Here is yet another way to earn money to help pay for a funeral. Contract to have statuettes, masks and 8 x 10 color photos made of the deceased. Then, sell them at the funeral as collectors items. Of course, this will work better if the deceased was actually famous. Sign in to see full entry.
