As a vet, I’m faced with the tough task of farewelling clients’ pets almost on a daily basis. Certainly not the best part of my job…But an even more taxing task that has been brought to my attention is the demanding duty of planning one’s funeral. Imagine having to sort out the nitty-gritties like catering, dress code, eulogies, flowers, requiem music, venue, and um…coffins? As much as I love Pinterest and dressing up every day and attending events, attending a funeral is definitely on the bottom of the list. The piano keys become blurry as tears disable my hand-eye coordination, wearing black can be slimming but a LBD looks much more chic at a cocktail party. This heartfelt message of “I’d Hate to Plan Your Funeral” has been designed for you and I, and our loved ones. Is there someone you love you would like to ask to slowdown?
Life is too precious to farewell. Slow down so you can sing along to the radio. Slow down so you can wave to the person in the adjacent lane. Slow down so you can catch the aroma of the flowers. Slow down so no one you love has to plan your funeral.
