"My mom and I are throwing a surprise 50th birthday party for my dad. He has spent the last few years trying to use up all of the gags on his buddies. His last friend's b-day he spent a month doing gags and saying "top that!" So, in a desperate attempt to top it, I would like to have a mock funeral, mourning his youth. I would like to send out invites in the form of an obituary, decorate with tombstones, make everything black, maybe even have a fake casket to put in guests' memories of his youth. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have no idea where to even begin writing a eulogy!"

Hi sweetie, I to am in the midst of planning a 50th for my husband, I have many of the decorations made. My theme is old as dirt. I made bones and on the bones I wrote funny saying to do with an old geezer. I also glued one of the bones on a toy shovel and wrote on it… Diggin’ up bones. I am now working on the eulogy. Begin it by saying something like.. The lord says there is a time for everything: A time to laugh , a time to cry, a time to hold on , a time to let go. The time has come for us to let___________ go! He has come to the end of the road, this is for someone who in his life liked….. and enjoyed to ….. now has been put to rest. May the Lord have mercy on us who now have to put up with … and so on. Good Luck with your party! Beth
