Comin’ for to carry me home
Posted on Tuesday 31st March 2009 by Louise Carron Harris
When I first set up Sentiment 3 years ago one of the first things I did was write my funeral plan. 3 years have since flown by, so last night I settled down to see what has changed… Surprisingly nothing drastic – other than the amount of input a funeral director has. In my original plan I had requested that the family call in the local FD and have them do everything – but not use their hearse because I want a bus!
Recently I decided that I didn’t really want the local FD to take over my funeral because I have come to believe it’s really important to have everyone involved (if they so wish). I added to the plan some information and advise so my family can carry out most of their own arrangements from transporting my body , washing it down right through holding ‘viewing’ at our home.
Today’s blog from the Good Funeral Guide coincides with what I had written… and I’d like to stand up and give Charles a round of a applause for making it sound logical!
