    My wife thinks I'm crazy. I told her that I would like a Masonic funeral AND full military funeral with honors AND ..... a starwars funeral, with stormtroopers, all in one. Followed by a big party with laughter, brotherhood and enjoyment. No sadness. Is that too much to ask??

    Sounds like a blast! I really hate the thought that you might miss it.

    I'd probably question what they are most happy about, my party or my departure.

    Sometimes I think it may be a mix of both!

    A funeral is not for the dead, anyway.

    Heck no! Obviously it's hard for loved ones left behind, but a funeral should be a celebration YOUR life, not death. I don't have a Storm Trooper outfit...but I do have one sweet Darth Vader costume complete with breather effects and saber. lol

    When the funeral wagon goes past on Bourbon Street everyone joins in the parade and lifts a flask to the departed.

    And, I hasten to say, it's not the first time many of those riders left Bourbon Street on their backs.

    I am always so sad when i see masonic regalia at estate sales or ebay and no one knows anything about it . I told my wife that my stuff better not end up on ebay lol I want my apron with me and a S&C on my tombstone . all my other stuff needs to be handed down to my son and or grand son if i have one . I always wonder if the ones left behind realize how important that ring they are pawning was worth to the man who use to wear it ?

    We have a large cemetery in Mobile that has a specific Masonic section for Brothers and their immediate family to be buried. I have told my wife that I want to be buried there and a Masonic funeral.

    I've told my wife Julie that I want one. If we both pass I want my estate to pass to the lodge I might be a member of. After retirement I'll be a Traveling Man.

    I'd forgotten... the Badge of a Mason goes with me and the rest will go to my wife and then my boys and then to Lodge!

    Both a religious and Masonic funeral. I have already told my loved ones that if the reverend decides that he can not participate if there is a Masonic presence then that is too bad. I want a Masonic send off. Besides, my belief is that by the time of my funeral my soul is already at where it will spend eternity and the presence of a minister will not make any difference.

    I have by burial apron away. My wife knows where it is and there is instructions on where to bring it to and who to contact in case of my life ending.
