Bunjamon saidI loved this interview. It might sound cliché, but watching "Six Feet Under," which takes place in a funeral home and is about the family that runs it, change the way I think about death in much this way. This mortician sounds pretty bitchin'.
pellaz saidevery boy on the planet, if their lucky, will for sure witness their parents death. This best done when we are 55 years old. No matter what, than you will be truly alone in the world.

feel for you;
-it took my breath away selling the house i grew up in.
-estate situations usually sell under value
-keep in mind the proceed are federal & state tax free
-you might have an agent or two go through the house and suggest small improvements that can add value.
-every state has different probate laws. You might look into putting an add in a newspaper to notify creditors. You can close the estate early that way
-update continue with home owners insurance, beneficiary "estate of John Smith"
-of course you will have to file state & federal income taxes for the "estate of John smith" but again any money you get out of the estate is tax free.
MuchMoreThanMuscle saidAs people "age" they tend to focus, if not obsess, on their mortality.
Life is precious so don't let it 'slit' I mean slip you by.
kevex saidWhat a dumb topic.
David3K saidIm not scared of death but I dont wanna die.
hairyandym saidWe have some wonderful old cemeteries on the island. I like walking thru them. I remember one in particular where the tombs were caving in. It was creepy, almost like the spirits were escaping. I used to eat my lunch there… LOL. They have since restored it and closed it off to the public.
pazzy saidwould like to be cremated. who cares who does it. just don't scatter my ashes in new jersey though. scatter me in the upstate ny woods.
David3K saidBeen familiar with death since very young (my mother died when i was 9) then my grandma, uncle and even my sister in law. Im not scared of death but not atteacted to it either , dont see the point of wondering cemetaries like some of you do. When the time comes ill be ready meanwhile have more interesting things to focus on
