Give Yourself the Celebration You Deserve

giveyourselfA funeral may seem like it’s about death, but author Susan Bailey reminds us, “It’s really a celebration of life.” She and Carmen Flowers wrote Grave Expectations: Planning the End Like There’s No Tomorrow to help others gain new perspective on a difficult issue. “The best funerals are the ones where there is a lot of laughter, joy, and reminiscing,” they affirm.

One way to provide loved ones with that experience is to plan your own funeral. To guide you, Grave Expectations includes questionnaires for identifying what you want so you can create a celebration that accurately reflects your personality and life.

Selecting a Harley Davidson urn or designating a signature song like “My Way” may seem unusual, but why not celebrate your life the way you lived it? “It was your life; your funeral is the one time you should do and say absolutely whatever you want,” Bailey insists.
