SERIOUS ONLY. I want to plan my funeral. Looking for input.
Advertisements [?]
Just had a death of an in-law. She was not an old woman, and I was surprised that she had paid for a burial plot many years ago. The family still had to choose things like a casket and funeral home. It was awful and so heartbreaking for her husband. So I want to make my plans now.

I know a few things for sure:

1) I want to be cremated.
2) I don't have a preference or need for any religious service, except maybe something spiritual.
3) I don't want my family to have to make decisions for my funeral that I should have made ahead of time and
4) I don't want my family to have to pay for it.

My dad planned and paid for his and my mom's burial and everything that would happen after his death. When he passed away, I realized how incredibly generous and loving this was on his part. I am still relatively young and healthy, and I'd rather make these decisions now while nothing is imminent.

Have any of you planned yours? And do you have any suggestions or ideas? I'm open to something cool and unusual, because I am anything but "usual."

xoxox and thanks!
