According to the average cost of cremation is $1,100.  That’s a good budget.  Anything beyond that is kind of a waste.  Maybe a keg of beer.  Or whatever.  And some good reggae music.  But that’s about it.  Okay, and maybe rent a big screen so everyone can watch Harold and Maude.  (Which, by the way, is a beautiful movie about living life to the fullest.)

Dominique, people will tell you that you “have to” or “should” do this, that, or the other.  You don’t.  There are no “have to’s.”  There’s no hurry.  Shop around. Sleep on it.  There are no rules.  Maybe a few laws, and if you break any of those, just don’t get caught.

And remember the Citroën 2CV.
