I think you made a wise decision there Webmaister. We did the same 14yrs ago, we bought ours it cost 650.
When my brother died 2yrs ago it cost 1900 for same 200yds from ours. We did not want our son and daughter to have the bother of it ,and we picked a nice wee spot. We do not have a photo of it, but we see it when we visit the cemetery. I know this type of topic is not to everyones taste ,but that is what the board is all about , a variety of topics for discussion.!!!! Regards Catherine

Aye it took a long time fur it tae come tae me but Therese's hit the nail oan the heid as tae why Wull the Webmaister is arranging his ain funeral, cos he's frightened thit his family will chuck him in the midgie as soon as they realise he's broon breed.
Och the puir wee sowel, a suppose he kin leave the hole uncovered wae the open cofin in the botum so thit when he feels deidness comin upone him he kin jist lie doon aw by hissel and slip aaf tae wherever he's gawn.
Perhaps he might waant tae dae his ain obituary before he goes, that wid be a laugh.

So this year ah hiv not only purchased a lair but mah 'last will & testament" is getting sorted this year also.

Incidently being a South Lanarkshire resident mah lair only cost 198.80p....whit ah also forgot tae tell ye wis mah big pal Jas has bought the lair next tae mine!
Ye want tae hear the wummin they hiv been laughing at us!! The four of us are going on holiday this year tae`discuss it!!
  Ye see naebody else wants tae be buried so he bought the next lair tae keep me company.....ah real pal!  Ah must get the photies oan the website....

Noo don't get awe serious oan me. 
This is a topic that some folk dareny talk aboot.
But why not..there is wan thing fur sure we are awe gonny snuff-it
Scots folk are murder at talking aboot death, other nationalities have nae problem wi' it
Ah tell ye whit ah told ma boys...I hope to live fur a long time tae come, ah jist want this sorted. I'll need tae get a sorcerer's apprentice tae take oan the webmaisters role......
            A wee Glesga man and his wife wur hiving a fight on the day of their 40th wedding anniversary. The man yells, "When you die, am getting ye a headstane that reads, 'Here Lies My Wife - As Cold As Ever'."  "Aye" she replies,"When you die, I'm getting you a headstane that says,
'Here lies mah Man -Stiff At Last.'"

Webmaister..........Thanks Pals .

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on the snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there I  do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there I did not die 
                              Mary Frye (1932}

Your Gap ?
A man  stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. 
He referred to the dates on his headstone, from beginning to end.
The first came with the date of his birth, and then the date of his death. He spoke of the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most was the gap between those years. For the gap represents all the time he spent on this earth, and only those who loved him know what that gap is worth.
For it disnae matter how much we own, how much money we have, the cars.. the house.. what matters is how we live and love and how we spend our gap.
You never know how much time is left. If we could just slow down long enough to consider what is real and true and always try to understand how others feel. Are there friends you've left behind? Things you've left unsaid, that wee broken fence you need to mend?
Be less quick to anger, and treat others to a smile, so when your epitaph's being read and your life is being rehashed, you would be proud of what they have to say about how you spent your gap.
