Matt's dead; let's party

Two people I know who've died recently apparently requested no memorial service, and their loved ones went along with it. I don't really understand that. I imagine they did not want to put anyone out. But memorial services aren't for the dead, they're for the living.

Memorial services allow the people left behind to gather and not be alone in their grief. They allow people to share memories and smile through the sadness.

SO ... to ensure there is no misunderstanding, I want a big, effing blowout.

Not an Irish Wake, think fraternity party.

I don't dance, but there better be dancing.

I don't drink, but I want drinking. If someone wants to play beer pong on my coffin, OK.

I don't want sadness when I die, I want laughter.

(And I am not planning on dying soon, just when I do, let's party!)

seems about right, since you intend to die laughing. I can also promise that someone will laugh inappropriately at an solemn moment.

I think we should have a practice run at your place while you are still alive! Talk about a blast.

A blast or sort of morbid?
