I overheard these people talking about how small this funeral was that they attended and was sitting there thinking, " I wonder how many people would actually show up to my funeral?" Has anyone else ever thought this?

I considered just having my future husband or child or whatever give out the general announcement and say that if anyone wants to acknowledge it, they can just donate money to the Infinity Burial Project (which is what I'll be doing with my remains). I don't anticipate anyone actually wanting to show up except to comfort my loved ones, so it's best that the living visit with the living instead of visiting me. I just can't banter back at them while dead.

Hopefully none. I want to be cremated and those ashes to be trashed. Bunch of nonsense about showing up when I'm already gone!

I would hope enough people would show up, at least the ones that I made a difference to in their lives.

I'd like for anyone who actually wants to show up to come. I hate going to funerals for people I didn't know well.

The list probably peaks at around twenty people.

GONE! GONE!
Uhhh... Like maybe twenty people, all relatives who would let their evil children frolic and go potty on my grave. I doubt my friends would show up sadly.

Hopefully all those who need to for the closure. I am going to be cremated and have a private throwing of my ashes in two sentimental areas. I have also planned a celebration of life party for those who want to attend. There hopefully will be no sadness but much laughter and memories at the celebration!!!

Just like Tuesdays with Morrie! I've always wanted to do a celebration of life if I were to be in a situation like his.

Nobody, I don't want a funeral. I want someone to carry my ashes around like in the movie Elizabethtown.

Five maybe. I have spend most of my life living abroad, so I don't have a lot of friends back at home.

Lots, I think! I can think of lots of people whose funerals I'd attend, if that's any indication!
