Topic: SENSITIVE..but Funny for Me....My Own Cemetery Plot
My Brother was here this last week and he felt that since my Dad had 2 extra Cemetery Plots here that he would give them to me. Being the planners that we are we decided to go to the Cemetery ...Valley of the Sun...and get it all set up and take that off the minds of our kids and ourselves. Have to tell you it took 3 hours and we were like a comedy act. Haven't laughed so hard in ages but it is all set and we are relieved.
The 2 plots are right off the circular drive in the Jewish section. He says, there is no shade and I said it doesn't matter I will be shaded for eternity. It went on like that over hours. Anyway he came up with a brilliant idea for me. I wanted to be cremated and my ashes mingled with Teddy's. My Brother was against that as most Jews are not for Cremation. So, he suggested that we put Teddy's Urn with me when I am in my new Condo underground. Marvelous! My Brother has done so much for me its the least I could do for him and all I really wanted was to be with T-Bear. We were telling our person at the Cemetery what we wanted to do and she said you cannot do that with an Urn, however if no one sees, just slip a bag with the ashes in to the coffin. Otherwise there is another 900.00 tacked on. Can you imagine? So I am happy, he is happy and that big step no one cares to take is done and we are relieved. I didn't ask for my computer yet so I can stay on the CC site!!! Hey, all, it was not a bad thing to do at all and now it's done, set and sealed...not to make a pun. My point was to share with you that as one gets older it is a good thing to have done and ready. Oh, then the lady said, and where ever you are when you pass we will pick you up. I said oh, well that will be center stage on Broadway.
