I, like Cromwell, would prefer to be remembered, warts and all.
The humour can come from old friends ('remember crazy Paul and
that Internet dust-up he had with the UFO guys back in 2002?'
What a naive schmuck), the truth can come from the wife ('If
only he really had exploited more people, we could have gotten
that Hyundai instead of the Kia'), and the lies can come from
Majestic 12 ('of course he was working for us, part of the Top
Secret Restricted NOVA project').

If you're coming, remember that it's BYOB (no popcorn at my
funeral!!), and don't forget your camera.
