Hi! My name is Kathy Benjamin and I’m the author of It's Your Funeral!: Plan the Celebration of a Lifetime—Before It's Too Late, on sale August 17, 2021. Funerals might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to laughing and having a great time, but this book aims to change that. By making planning your own funeral into something fun, it takes a lot of the fear out of such a normally serious topic.
Humor isn’t just appropriate when dealing with death, it’s downright necessary. Grief is such a complicated emotional rollercoaster already, without trying to live up to the standards set by our po-faced, death-obsessed Victorian ancestors. (And if they were so great, how come they are all dead now, huh?)
While death and funerals are perhaps the toughest situations to deal with, any hard time can become just that little bit easier when you laugh. So even if you’re not ready to chuckle while planning your own funeral, these tips can be applied to anything else stressful or scary.
