Book Description

A fascinating and fun (yes, really!) guide to planning your final farewell. From selecting your burial outfit to your funeral theme, guided-journal elements and worksheets will help you think outside the coffin.

For most of us, our own funeral is an afterthought or, even worse, an anti-thought—something we avoid thinking about altogether. This book will change that negative thinking forever! After all, planning one’s funeral is an act of love and an important part of good mental health. Now readers can make sure their sendoff is exactly what they want it to be, whether a somber reflection on who they were, a drunken bacchanal for a life well lived, or a peaceful adieu to their earthly existence.

This practical yet cheeky guide offers a plethora of advice and inspiration, from budgeting for the big day to selecting a burial outfit to choosing a memorial theme. Morbid and pragmatic questions alike are answered, including:

• What is the most eco-friendly burial method?
• Should I write my own obituary?
• Do I really need a will?
• Can my body be shot into space after I die?
• What can be cremated with me?
• And, perhaps most important, how do I avoid being buried alive?

It’s Your Funeral! presents every stage of the legacy planning process—both material and digital—to ensure that one’s wishes are recorded for posterity before venturing to the Great Beyond. So get ready to dig into curious facts, strange stories, and helpful worksheets that cover everything readers need to know to make death the best time of their life.
