Man planned his funeral, wrote own humorous obituary

Marcus McDonald knew his time was short. He had lung cancer. His condition was deteriorating this fall.

So, McDonald, looking to spare his family the stress, picked out his own casket, made all his funeral arrangements and started writing his obituary Sept. 14 to spread the word of Jesus Christ, share his love for his wife and four daughters — and share his laid-back style of humor.

Toward the end of his obituary he wrote: “For those of you that read this and come to my funeral, I thank you on behalf of my family because that’s who you are doing it for; I ain’t gone be there … I’m in heaven, thank God!
