Thinking about your funeral may be a bit morbid, but some people already have an idea of how they’d like their life celebrated once they pass on.
Take Lillian Droniak for example. The 92-year-old great-grandma, who is known as Grandma Droniak, recently shared her wishes, well more like demands, on TikTok.
Grandma Droniak gives you permission to cry, “but don’t cry too much.” The TikTok star is just trying to look out for her friends and family. She doesn’t want anyone to “make a fool of yourself.”
Her second rule is a little odd, and requires all those in attendance to be on the lookout.
“Bertha is not invited. Don’t let her in.”
Droniak explained in a follow-up video that Bertha is indeed a real person who “was NOT a good person!”
According to the 92-year-old, Bertha is a “troublemaker” who previously tried talking to her husband, and now that Droniak is a celebrity Bertha is jealous.
Lastly, Droniak wants everyone to have a drink or two in celebration of her life after her funeral.
“And you better get drunk afterwards” were her exact instructions.
While the video containing the rules for her funeral is her top viewed with over 31 million views on TikTok, Droniak said her main goal is to keep the conversation “lighthearted” around death.
“It doesn’t need to be scary or taboo. It helps you live life better if you’re not afraid,” she told Insider.
“I joke about death because it will happen to all of us, as scary as that is,” she said. “Might as well laugh about it.”
I love how Grandma Droniak sees death. When you add a little humor to it, it doesn’t seem as scary. Maybe I’ll think about some “rules” for my funeral…
Please share this lighthearted video.
