Heaven on Earth......

Went to a funeral today, over a hundred people were there which is amazing for an eighty one year old man who was neither famous nor well known just truly admired for his kind nature, a real gentleman. When you get to that age many of your contemporaries have passed on and its just a smattering of relatives that mourn your death. It was so cold and windy that I was pleased it wasn't a graveside ceremony. When I die I hope I'll be buried not cremated. I want to lie in a grave yard with a little head stone above me. I'd like to think of people walking past and passing comment like I do when reading the epitaphs. The funeral service sheet had photos of Tony during his life and the last photo was of him sitting on a bench with his back to the camera looking over the most beautiful sea. It made me smile like he was in heaven already.

  1. Cremation for me please. The thought of lying in a coffin rotting embarrasses me.

    I want to be smoke curling up into the clouds.

    But not just yet. I have stuff to do.
