    Hi all, my cousin of only 30 died suddenly last week, he had kidney problems and lyphnoma :-(

    It's his funeral on Thursday and I want to do something apple related as he was mad on mac's and we spent lots of time talking about them and in our rooms playing with our computers.

    I'm going to goto the family's designated florist tomorrow to see if they will do a flower display in the shape of the Apple Logo, just wondering if they can't do it can you think of anything else I could do along these lines... i know my uncle (his father) and he would really appreciate it.

    Thanks so much.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. :(

    Have you thought about reading or including the "Crazy Ones" poem. I always find it rather touching, and for an Apple fan, I'm sure you could find a nice way to work it into the service.

    My idea was to have a eulogy spoken from the point of view of his Mac, and using the original Macintosh voice (good if you have a laptop and external speakers). My thought is to keep it light hearted, which might give friends and family a smile in a difficult time.

    That's a pretty cool idea. Maybe a combo of our ideas might work too.

    Best of luck, and my condolences. :eek:

    What about a tribute made in Keynote and displayed at the church/funeral home. My brother did one for when our mother passed away.

    Our condolances for your loss.......

    Thanks for all your input, though because he did have loads of friends and did lots of activities, the keynote idea was a bit too much i think, plus it was a cremation so we didn't have long in the crematorium.

    I did manage to get an arrangement made by and EXCELLENT local florist, they were fantastic, i came the day before (<15 hrs notice) and they were at the suppliers at 5am getting everything for me.

    Here's a pic

    Aww- that's really great. I'm sure that would have made your cousin happy.
