vanity, you're not missing much. Just my honest opinion, of course.
I wonder if Ari Onassis, was buried with his glasses in place.
Doris Duke's wish, was to be thrown to the sharks. I don't think her desire was fulfilled.

I gave a promise, to my friend, Mr Bodner,that if the time arises, I will give him a viking funeral, in the East River.

I plan on being cremated. My parents have said to cremate them and go on vacation with the extra cash. It seems pretty silly to bury a dead body in expensive things. Burn 'em, their dead anyway.

What if you get There (wherever) and you find out... you could take it with you? And the only store they have there is A&F?

that means you've arrived in the other there, and deserve to pay hundreds for ripped jeans for all eternity

As one gets up in years, funerals become a matter of course. Someone has to plan them. Particularly if the death is sudden or violent, the immediate family is often unable to cope with arrangements. This is when someone else, must step in. The funeral parlor, can't do everything. It gets complicated. Many decisions to make. You must choose a casket, and flowers and decide where the body will be buried, and arrange for a service, and the gathering, afterward. It takes a certain amount of poise. The process continues, especially if a monument is to be erected at the burial site. I attended no less than six meetings, until we finally decided on the just the right effects. Gets expensive, too.

Ivan, have you ever made the plan, for a viking funeral?

No, I haven't. But there's always a first time.

Parsis seem to have a unique method of corpse disposal. Tower of Silence + vultures. No mention of glasses though. http://www.time.com/time/asia/magazi...a_vulture.html lefty

I like the vulture idea. Too bad about that virus . . .
