When I die, I want the whole congregation at my funeral to sing the old hymn “Wonderful Words of Life” because they will all have to sing the first stanza, which includes this nugget:

Words of life and beauty, Teach me faith and duty:

When everyone sings the word “duty,” my wife and daughters will laugh, because the word duty is funny, and it will be one parting laugh I share with them.  So when you see my family laughing at my funeral, you’ll know why.
