You Can Take It With You

You Can Take It With You

Why bother with a boring traditional funeral? Why not make it a celebration of the happiest moments of your life?

"Smith's body was on the recliner, his feet crossed and a remote in his hand. He wore black and gold silk pajamas, slippers and a robe. A pack of cigarettes and a beer were at his side, while a high-definition TV played a continuous loop of Steelers highlights.

"I couldn't stop crying after looking at the Steeler blanket in his lap," said his sister, MaryAnn Nails, 58. "He loved football and nobody did (anything) until the game went off. It was just like he was at home.""

How would you like to be remembered at your funeral?
