Laura Zaky

I went to a funeral latley and was saddened by all these people being sad.
It's clearly not for me, I thought. So I thought what is for me so here it goes:

When I pop my cloggs leave this body behind going forward on my path back to the prime creator when I wander back I choose not to have a church or any kind of "official service". As I do not want somebody that does not know me blessing me in what I do not believe to be true.
I want all that can be donated to be donated the rest to medical science - good luck - and with what's left to be set on a funeral pyer out to sea. I would like everybody to gather at my house or a suitable location and have a COLOURFUL party and remember all of the good times, human emotion will not let us get out of the grips of tears an the missing but at least have a good nosh up and renditions of what a great person I was or what ever lots of music and laughter, I'll ask for a sunny day!

Love, Sunshine & Laughter

After doing so, I studied all kinds of related matters about death and dying -- including the lighter side. I created a site and I have not updated it for years (for some reason it stays online) but there are still some good links and articles there. > >

I was recently interviewed by a reporter about creating your own funeral and what I wanted for mine. My mother's comments included: "Stephanie, the neighbors are going to read this!" > >

I don't think the link to it works anymore but I could probably get it into pdf if you wanted. > >

On the Internet, I met a great guy who designs coffins for people -- they use them for liquor cabinets or book shelves or coffee tables until they need them for the "other use." We traded my book for his T-shirts that say "Bert and Bud's Vintage Coffins: Don't be caught dead without one" or "We put the fun back in funerals." I had already been using the fun and funerals phrase before we ran into each other as I am a humor writer and people could not quite understand the connection between my humor stuff and my funeral book. Anyway, if a person wants a very interesting day of interactions, wear a T-shirt like that. I could write a book on the reactions I have gotten. > >

I think their URL is www.vintagecoffins.com. If not, let me know and I will find the right one. > >

The boomers are rewriting the face of funerals and fun is part of what they are injecting. > >

Best of luck with what sounds like a great project. > >
