    extreme embalming

    from yahoo,

    "A family whose teenage son died honored his memory in an unusual wake: His corpse was positioned in a chair facing a television screen, a video game controller in hand and his favorite snacks next to him. "

    Extreme embalming is whatever they did, and continue to do, to Vladimir Lenin. That guy died in the 1920's and last I read, is still on display in Russia.

    My Dad says that when he first started in the funeral business in 1964, it was common for the funeral home to lay the recently deceased on a sofa or bed when the family first saw the body. After that, the deceased was moved to a casket. He said it was to ease the family into seeing their loved one for the first time.

    We did have one man pass several years ago. After the service, we buried the man sitting in his recliner. So, I suppose this type of posing of the body isn't so terribly strange.

    Bottom line, whatever gets you through it I suppose.

    I want at least three speakers up front, three in the back and a svs subwoofer When I’m buried.


    I’m not scared of dying and I don’t really care, if surround sound comes with dying then let the time be near



    My Troubles are many they're as deep as a well, I’m sure there is no heaven but I hear there’s only mono deep in hell.


    And when I die and when I’m gone they’ll be one Oppo player to carry-on, to carry-on
