Line of duty death form (humorous)
Thought I would share a humorous story about our Line of Duty Death form that we all fill out on the Fire Dept. in our city.

A while back the Fire Admin. decided it would be a good idea to have on file each member's wishes should we be involved in a Line of Duty death. What religion, type of service, Honor Guard, FD Funeral, etc... We all filled it out and it is kept sealed in our personnel file in case the worst happens. Since I really don't care what happens to me upon my death I figured I'd have a little bit of fun with it so in case I do happen to die in the line of duty I think their expression would be priceless when they open my file.

I asked for a Viking funeral (though not a completely accurate description). I wish for my body to be laid on a funeral pyre on a raft. Upon which I wish to be floated out to the middle of the river and have "Paul" (not his real name but one of the mechanics that works on our fire apparatus) who doesn't even know who the hell I am to shoot the flaming arrow thus igniting the raft and allow my body to be burned in a glorious ceremony.

Don't get me wrong. I hope I don't die in the line of duty but if I do they have to follow my wishes and in a way I wish I could be around for it.

I get to decide what my life looks like, not the other way around.

Any way you could stage this, Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer style? Big Grin

So many of us wish we could attend our own funerals. This would be the best.

I'm going to attend my own funeral. It wouldn't be much of a funeral if I wasn't there. Laugh out load

Fire Department?

I see nothing wrong with that funeral; your guys can use it to get the rookies used to the smell of cooked human.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

I see nothing wrong with that funeral; your guys can use it to get the rookies used to the smell of cooked human.

That's dark.

But makes some sense in a twisted sort of way.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Believe me... You don't ever want to witness or smell that if you can keep from it. You won't forget it if you do. But... If you do I'll give you a bit of information. Smells similar to Prell Shampoo. Weird I know.

I am just glad to see some humor from you...dark, light, or anything in between. Smile

Being as I'm the eternal procrastinator, I'll prolly be late for my funeral... but I guess they can start without me? Yes

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
