My Obituary

Still working on it, as I am with my life. Since I don't know when it will end (only G-D knows that), I will continue to work, and try to make it a good one so my children and children down, will not be ashamed of their mother and grandmother, except that she was a lousy tecfky, and always had to be calling for someone to ''do this or that' with the TV, computer, or cell phone. But she was a good cook...

do good deeds

Usually we get to know the greatness of a person once he dies... So, I have this thing about doing good deeds so that when my time comes at least no one will have to lie or make up stories about me... just dig up some of the "good stuff" stories . Want the kids and grandkids to be proud of me.

No eulogy for me

All my friends know I'm an honest person who expects honesty in return. When I die, I don't want a eulogy said in my funeral. Why? What if someone says something that isn't true? I'd feel like shouting from heaven "that's not true!" and wouldn't like it if nobody heard me. ;-) And no obituary for me either - just "she finally died."

I've been thinking about this

I am at an age where I go to more than my fair share of funerals, and I feel the need to read the daily obituaries. I have been thinking about writing my own obituary and leaving with my funeral information. Why not, who knows me better than me.
