First and foremost I would to thank everybody who’s here in my final wake. My friends, my family and everybody who’s here. Thank you!!

I promised myself I wouldn't leave this to my family and have them post something like   I WAS A SHREW or something sucky like I was strong willed and awfully cheerful person awww put a sock in it will you. 
I wanna go like I lived, sippin' margaritas and laughing  no folks dressed in black to pay their last respects to me...if I could have it I would have music and good food and have folks dancing and rejoicing my life.

Death is no big deal if you don't love life. But we get this lifetime opportunity to  live only once. Then why not make the most of it while we are at it anyways. Its okay to be sad and down as these are a part of our life as well. To know happiness we have to experience sadness too. 

Folks are almost always uncomfortable when talking about death. They beat around the bush and avoid all associations with it.  I'll be sorry that I would miss my wake as wonderful things would be said about me as folks usually don't...
