Hahaha #10 that's funny. Why not make the decisions before he dies so you don't have to decide on the spot? This happens a lot actually, it's not a big deal lol.

It really is better now than never. My grandfather just passed and did not have any of these things planned out in his will. No one knew what he wanted, he didn't have a plot picked out, and it caused alot of heart ache for family members who were having trouble trying to follow his wishes without actually knowing what he wanted. Having everything prepared saves so much trouble when the family member passes so that things can run smoothly while everyone is grieving, instead of trying to run and prepare things. So take heart OP, he isn't planning on dying tomorrow, he is just taking those steps that everyone should take when they start aging.

#57 there are quite a few FML members under 10, shockingly. If you take a look at people's profiles, it's quite surprising. (That and the occasional FML visibly posted by kids.)

Yeah, my grandpa passed away not too long ago and we went through the same thing. It would have been much easier to plan the funeral and make all of the arrangements at a time when we weren't grieving.

that is really sad. However, it is better to prepare for it now, then when the time comes they can grieve properly instead of hiding being funeral plans. x

I hate these FMLs that basically say "Someone I know is going to die. Fuck MY life." How much more conceited can you get? Why not spend a moment thinking how much it sucks for the person that's going to die?

Because they care! If someone you love is going to die, you get upset. So therefore your life sucks because you have to go through that. I do agree with you on it sucking for the person dying, but only that statement.

Pre-arranged funeral services are pretty common these days. Arranging it all in advance helps to alleviate some of the financial pressures at the time of the actual event. Your mum and grandma are smart. If you had heard them plotting your grandfather's murder...then perhaps an FML would be warranted.

This isn't a FML. You usually plan the funerals WITH the person who's dying so that they can have what they want. This site is getting less into the "F my life" and more into the "I don't know anything"
