Wow, Stephanie, this is great stuff! I couldn't access parts of your blog without logging in. Particularly the family funerals section sounded like fun.

Would you be willing to write humorous piece for our eBook about planning your funeral? I take it that your own funeral is going to be whizbang since your mom is worried about the neighbors reading your interview about it. And do you know any editors that are good with editing short humor?

The link to the coffin site works. I'll drop them a line. They might be able to send some folks to me that have cool stories. Thank you!

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. > >
