Does this happen to anyone else?

I often think about what would happen if I died, not as in committing suicide but what would happen after? Would people be truly upset? What would happen at my funeral?

Is this normal?

I'd say it's quite normal and common Bellamilo. I do that myself periodically.

And my conclusion is, when I die a lot of people will cry. All of them debt collectors. Other than them, no one will miss me. As for my funeral, there won't be one for me, because I expect to be unceremoniously buried in a shallow grave way out in the desert. Possibly Slab City CA or the infamous off grid "Mesa" outside Taos, New Mexico. Some kind of drug deal gone bad, or maybe I drank too much whiskey, and messed around with the wrong dude's old lady.

I’ve had thoughts along those lines, a few times spaced a ways apart. I don’t think many people would care that much about my death. A few friends, some cousins, a few other family members. I probably won’t leave much behind.

IDK. If I died tomorrow, I would have a handful of friends, family would probably visit, dad and bro would be there.

I guess it is the same as if I got married. I don't have a great number of people I would invite. I would probably opt for a very small intimate wedding.

If I died I can guarantee nobody will be at my funeral. I don't have any friends or family. I'd end up just getting burnt and then my ashes put in some cheap jar and left sitting somewhere for the next year or 2, I don't have a next of kin so they'll probably end up getting chucked away.

Look at it this way... if there isn't life after death then it won't matter because you won't know what happens at your funeral, and if there is life after death then it'll be such a huge thing that I doubt you'll be unduly bothered by what's happening back in the mortal realm.

I once said to my old housemate that I wanted people to have fun at my funeral. His reply was, 'don't worry - we will!'... in retrospect I completely set myself up for that one.

When I die I'm going to haunt my house and also haunt those who have done me wrong.
