Afterwards we watched some of the photos and video of their recent cruise through the Panama Canal. Extremely interesting and now a trip I would like to take. During her cruise they had photos taken during one of those fancy evenings where you dress up. Professional quality—the photographer posed them and made an attempt to make them look better rather than those quicky shots that are usually quite dreadful.
So they bought the package—a single portrait of each of her and her hubby and also shots of the two of them.
They are quite nice.
Then she said: “Now I have a nice photo for my casket”.
You know the photo that is displayed on the casket at your funeral. I laughed. I will say that the two of them have been at quite a few funerals this past year where they saw a lot of funeral portraits. Which got me thinking about finding a nice photo and putting it somewhere that can easily be found so the photo on display at my funeral is a nice one.
I guess my point in all this is do you have a picture that you would want to have on display at your funeral?
I was thinking of doing the same car top photo as Kim Jong-il, the maniac dictator from North Korea who finally passed from this world (thankfully).
I would also like my epitaph to read:
“Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming ... WOW! What a ride!”
