ILOVE GARDENIAS

A FRIEND AND I WERE DISCUSSING THE FUNERAL OF SUZANNE PLESHETTE THE OTHER DAY AND HE EXPRESSED THE OPINION THAT THERE WAS A TASTEFUL AMOUNT OF FLOWERS AT THE SERVICE. SOMETIMES, THE FAMILY OF THE DEPARTED WILL SUGGEST THAT "IN LIEU OF FLOWERS, A DONATION BE MADE IN THE NAME OF .....". I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE IT VERY CLEAR HERE AND NOW THAT
I WANT THE FLOWERS!!!!!

OBIT MAGAZINE BELIEVES THAT BABY BOOMERS ARE THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND THE CHANGING APPROACH TO DEATH. THEY SAY WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IT MORE. THAT STRIKES ME AS HEALTHY. I'D LIKE TO TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER AND PLAN MY FUNERAL. I'VE BEEN PRESENT SO MANY TIMES WHEN SOMEONE HAS SAID THAT THE DEAD ONE WOULD HAVE LOVED THIS OR THAT, AND I CONFESS THAT I DON'T ALWAYS AGREE. PLANNING AHEAD IS A GUARANTEE THAT THERE WILL BE NO CONFUSION ABOUT WHAT I WOULD OR WOULD NOT LOVE. WHEN A LUMP WAS FOUND ON MY BREAST, I IMMEDIATELY CALLED MY PARTY PLANNER. I PREFER TO REST ASSURED THAT MY LAST PARTY IS ONE EVEN I WOULD HATE TO MISS.
