Now this is a eulogy...

We all hope (rather bizarrely, when you think about it) for some nice words at our funeral. But while I have written several pages of notes for possible eulogizers, I'm going to revise them after reading this.
We are gathered here, way far in the future, for the funeral of Jack Handey, the world’s oldest man. He died suddenly in bed, according to his wife, Miss France. [More of a must read literary gem]
Brings a tear to my manly eye, I can tell you.

Concerning Eulogies...the best comment I have heard came from the movie "A Prairie Home Companion"..." I don't want people to have to be reminded to remember me". Kinda sums it up for me.

Mine will say " I told you s.o.b.s I was sick".
