On Friday we took Mike to an appointment so we made a day of it and took him to breakfast and then for a short drive in the country. He loved it and so did Ron and I. Later the same day we went to the funeral home to make sure they will honor Ron’s burial policy since the original funeral home (where it was purchased) is no longer in business.
While we were there I took care of my own pre-arrangements. It may sound morbid but we really had fun with it. Our little sales guy was all funerally and serious and I kept reminding him that we aren’t dead yet. I told him he could “lighten” up even chuckle a little since nobody there could hear us anyway. I paid $1,990.00 for a basic cremation package. Since I do not want to be embalmed and I don’t want a viewing it was much cheaper. I didn’t want a fancy urn if my ashes are going to be buried in fact a cigar box would have been fine with me. I did say that even for $1,990.00 if would be nice if he sang or something but he said he can’t carry a tune.
