Hey it’s James – The whole family really appreciates all the support we’ve been getting. We need a favor of the collective – Rebecca wanted her urn with a sentimental engraving on one side.
My urn will have the sentimental engraving on one side. It will say my name, the dates of my life,
and have a tag line I haven’t worked the kinks out of yet (I’ll keep you posted, but feel free to submit your suggestions).
The back side of my urn will have instructions engraved into it. First off, I am (in my cremated urn state) to be kept permanently displayed in a family member’s home.
We need some of those suggestions. There will definitely be a return address engraved on the bottom for the Traveling Urn. Dad is working on the beginning details of a Hawaiian themed party (of course she blogged about it, she even left instructions here too!)
Oh, and I have thoughts on my wake & funeral. First off, it better be a big blow out party. You are all to wear hawaiian shirts, no black allowed. You are to sing karaoke. Badly. You are to limbo while holding my urn. There should be a chocolate cake with vanilla frosting and a Japanese strawberry shortcake (I’ll have to work on getting a picture for you). The party should be planned well in advance so everyone can attend, no last minute rush to get the night off from work. And I’d like to have a person in a cartoon character outfit greet everyone at the door. It’s a party after all!
