If yes, why? If no, why, and what would you do instead? I wouldn't personally, because I think wanting a funeral is greedy, unless you pay for it yourself. I simply don't understand the point of a funeral (other than helping overcome grief, and acknowledge the death). I think it's too costly and elaborate. The most I'd ask for is to be cremated and placed in a Bios Urn.. It gives the nice feeling of "being reborn as a tree." A tree lives a peaceful life. Your physical body gets another purpose, another life.
