A Longview woman has decided to come up with an alternative observance for her own "funeral". Bettye Bullock says she does not want a traditional funeral, so she's holding a "living funeral" party to celebrate her life. Bullock plans to invite loved ones to a labor day weekend party she calls "family and friends celebrating life". She says the celebration should focus on what people need to say to each other while they're alive.
"Give me my flowers while i yet live, speak kind words to me while i can hear them, so that's what i want, give the flowers while i live, speak the kind words while i can hear them, don't wait until I'm dead an i can't hear them" says Bullock.
