I sadly lost a mate of mine last year to Skin cancer at the age of 28. At his cremation he requested Sunscreen by Baz Lurman followed by feeling hot, hot, hot! It made for a much lighter mood, especially watching the vicar cope with the irony of sunscreen!

Sorry to hear about that. Makes me think about going out in the sun again.

I'd like my funeral to be like that, not a black, solemn event but more a party of my life etc. Everyone to wear bright clothes etc then goto the pub and get p!ssed afterwards

Bloody hell! Remind me to wear ear plugs at your funeral. My choices would be much more serene.

The Irish know how to do a funeral - at my Granny's wake we ended up singing 'til 7am the next morning....

Another reason why I avoid going out in the sun over here...mind you, after 10 years in Kenya and Saudi before coming here, its probably too late...but 28 is so young to die from skin cancer...tragic.

It's virtually a year to the day, we lost him on 1st April, sure he planned that too! Just had an Email from his widow, she's only 26 and married him 4 weeks before. Poor kid hasn't been coping too well and hasn't realised exactly how brave she's been.

Oi!!! I am unable to comment on the other 2 but I can show tact and subtlety as and when required, you know..............

Spurious comments like that are how people get a bad name for themselves, and Im more than capable of doing that on my own, thank you very much...

How VERY dare you........
