I can only hope it will even hold a candle to this.

LOL, nice!

I would recommend writing it before you die, though; it is much easier that way, unless you've discovered how to reanimate your corpse long enough to put pen to paper

Instead of a normal tombstone, I'd like a lifelike hand sticking up out of the ground that is giving a thumbs up.

Skip to 4:08. You know you want to.

That is amazing. I'm going to work on my own obituary this week, in case I kick the bucket while still in my Herculean youth.

I have no obituary planned but I do have the funeral plans.

I want a viking longboat build in which I am to be placed on a pyre and lit. Once alight I wish to be pushed out to sea as a beacon to all around me. Preferable in the middle of a major shipping lane off the coast of Portsmouth.

How about cremated and your ashes placed in a model of the Bismark and sunk on the local boating lake using an air rifle?

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

For added authenticity, you should include a radio-controlled model Stringbag dropping fireworks on the model of the Bismarck and then use the air rifle shot to simulate the scuttling.

EDIT TO ADD: Regarding the Viking funeral, I have but one thing to say: Götterdämmerung!

You're going to have to wait until I die or kill me to... it's gonna be green.
