Fire and Death, or something along those lines.

Just got back from the funeral and the cemetery.
The funeral was all right - the minister was one we'd never met. He horribly mangled all the Spanish names and got a date or two off by a decade... but all in all it was okay.
The cemetery is very pretty... Abuelita will be in a nice little garden with a fountain nearby. My mother says she wants to be buried there, too.
I asked Nicole what she wants at her funeral (we're weird like that; I know she wants 'Time of Your Life (Good Riddance)' by Green Day played if she dies young). She said it didn't matter since she's going to die alone in a ditch anyway.

What I want my funeral to consist of depends on when and how I die.

- If I die in some sort of accident, just a quiet family affair is good. I see no need to mention anything in the paper or anywhere else, just let me disappear. Better yet, don't tell anyone outside the family. I want you all to have that special feeling you get when someone asks where I've been lately and you say, in monotone: "she's dead".
- If I ever actually manage to pull off suicide, no funeral is necessary; I fully intend to off myself somewhere obscure so that the body will not be discovered for a long time. I will leave a note describing the steps that should be taken concerning online art galleries, this LJ, etc. Mostly just a text file to be copied and pasted saying: "Jenni is dead" or something to that effect.
- If I die of old age, none of this ridiculous "let's all dress in black and boo-hoo-hoo" nonsense. I demand color. I wore enough black during my lifetime, thanks - How about everyone in attendance is forced to wear a blindingly tacky Hawaiian shirt and a silly little party hat? And instead of those aggravating hymns, a Mariachi band. Yes. That sounds nice.

What about you people, what would you want at your funeral?
