A relative went to a funeral for a man he knew. On the "programme" (can't remember the right name for it) there was a request that sort of went like this:
"Joe's cell phone number is still connected, please call it and leave a message for him. We will be burying it with him."
Personally I think that's creepy. I was telling dh about it and he said under no circumstances to do that with him. As I pointed out he never answers the phone at home anyway so it would be a total waste of time.
Meanwhile me and the lady who told me this story were killing ourselves laughing at the fact that if someone was walking through the cemetery and the cell phone started ringing from the grave they would be past themselves.
So do you want your cell phone buried with you? If I had to pick an item it would be my lap top!!!
