Anyone who reads Sentiment’s Blog will know how much we love music. Music is the driving force for Sentiment’s existence – That is why we love ‘My Last Song’
Music was also the driving force behind My Last Song, but it’s not all music! My Last Song have got bigger and better over the past few years and their recent updated website makes it crystal clear what they are all about.
Their ‘Lifebox’ is now a fantastic way to store your online funeral plans and all the things that are important to you from funeral track lists to special photos and your funeral wishes. You can even access advice and information based about all things ‘funeral’ .
Take a gander at their site – If you like the internet and use of online storage than you’ll love My Last Song . (And be sure to participate in their Poll on the right hand side of their website)

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!

On the 3rd day of Christmas my accountant said to me “I don’t have a will” – * needle scratches record* YOU DON’T HAVE A WILL?? You have to be kidding me right?
The reason this conversation started is because he’s reading a Jeremy Clarkson autobiography – apparently Jeremy talks about the fact when you hit 40 years of age you begin to spend every day for the rest of your life thinking about your death (I’m sure Jeremy Clarkson has a much more humorous way of writing than I do)… anyway.
Since my accountant has turned the ripe old age of 40 he has in fact developed an irrational thinking of death – he fears his man flu is going to turn into throat cancer and his aching old leg joints are thrombosis, his acid indigestion is a heart attack, and the effects of last night curry is going to cause certain death!» Continue reading
