Mccartney Wants A Light-hearted Funeral

Former BEATLE SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY wants people to celebrate when he dies - because there is nothing worse than a "glum" funeral.
The 65-year-old singer has already made plans for his funeral as he wants it to be a light-hearted affair - preferring the service to include jokes and not serious tributes about his life.
And MCCartney admits he got the inspiration for an uplifting memorial service after witnessing a "celebratory" ceremony in Ireland.
He says, "I like the Irish approach, where it's celebratory. I remember an Irish woman once wished me well by saying, 'I wish you a good death.' And I said, 'Say what?'
"It's actually a great thing to wish someone. I thought, 'Well what would I like?' Jokes, a wake, music, rather than everyone sitting around looking glum."

Dear Paul,Please don't peg out over peg-leg. Seriously, I do understand the situation. You are soon going to feel alright again, like your song, because we are both the same age and both still good looking.Heather Mills was not your type, Paul, and didn't appreciate your pretty music, as I do. Never say die, as the saying goes. Keep looking forward and smilin'. You have my love. You haven't heard me sing your genius pretty song "Take it Away" yet. Email me soon, please, Paul.Love, AngelaYour life long fan
