Our Dearly Departures

Have you ever dreamt of a tomb with a view? If you’ve longed to live abroad, but weren’t able to escape your nine-to-five commitments at home, planning a trip at the end of a lifetime can be right at your cold, dead fingertips. 


Paul Bearer, LLC. International will plan your exclusive Destination Funeral. No need to pack bags for the last, endless vacation. Spend eternity surrounded by spectacular vistas and ages of history in the country of your choice. Don’t settle for a cemetery off Route 130 by the Super Walmart. Make your final journey the envy of your loved ones. 


Imagine your resting place situated on a cliff overlooking the blue Mediterranean Sea, a Parisian landmark where you can rub boney elbows with Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf and rock star Jim Morrison, or be sprinkled discreetly in the Trevi Fountain where your final wishes come true. 


Why leave your assets to ungrateful family members? Spend them on a trip they’ll never forget. Your, embalmed or cremated remains, will be whisked off to a world-class destination with an entourage of selected mourners. 


We strongly recommend cremation for all our dead clients, as stringent regulations prohibit where corpses can be buried on foreign soil. Plus, travel in style on this final flight. You’ll be carefully hidden in a monogrammed Hermes carry-on bag instead of in the belly of the plane with the other luggage.  (Special discounts are applied to preboarding cremation through our Burn to Earn program.) 


You’ll rest comfortably in the overhead compartment while your immediate family enjoy the perks of flying first-class. They’ll be assigned a specially trained grief attendant who will provide just the right amount of sympathy as they bring you a third vodka martini.  


No tears will be shed as guests enjoy accommodations in a five-star hotel. A bereavement buffet will include local delicacies, unlimited champagne and delicious liqueur-filled chocolate caskets, urns and hearses designed by renowned chocolatiers. 


Your remains will be taken on a tour of your forever city. Mourners will see the wonders of the locations you fell in love with prior to you staring into a black abyss. If you choose the Weekend at Bernie’s package as an alternative to cremation, photos can be taken of you with family at favorite sites.


Select your cadaver clothes and we’ll prop you against the Colosseum, Big Ben, the Acropolis or any international landmark. (Extra fees are applied to this special package. (Disguising a corpse as a travel companion takes our expert skills and palms must be greased to avoid arrests and a potential international incident.)


On the special day of checkout, a Cemetery Concierge will shuttle the remains to your Last Resort. An optional fireworks display can be provided with accompaniment of a personal playlist. Your mourners have several choices to conclude this once-in-a-death Destination Funeral. They can be chauffeured to the airport, remain at the location for several days of touring and shopping in your memory, or they can take our River Styx cruise.


We offer Destination Funerals to meet most budgets. A list of some standard packages is provided. Also, we offer individualized experiences that will suit all your deathly needs.


·       The Olympic Flame – Your final resting place will be a carefully hidden spot at the Acropolis. We will cremate your remains in a special Olympic Torch ceremony on the runway prior to your flight. (We have portable cremators to light you up at the location of your choice.) 


·       Stylin’ Stiff – You and three guests will be treated to an afternoon at an exclusive designer boutique. There, you’ll be fitted for a bespoke outfit that would be the envy of the red carpet if you could walk it. Choose from Versace, Louie Vuitton, Chanel, etc. You’ll be drop-dead gorgeous in a Jean Paul Gaultier corset.


·       French Flambe – Add a little alcohol and you’ll be cooked to a crisp as only the French   can do it. Your family will dine at The Jules Verne Restaurant located in the Eiffel Tower. You’ll accompany them in an unmarked pine box hidden in a silver chafing dish.


Receive a Michelin Star like the finest French Cuisine. Later you’ll be scattered over the rooftops of Paris when the pine box is accidently dropped from the top the legendary landmark.


·       Rest in Pizza – Well done and ashy is how you’ll be after you’ve visited the Forno Italiano (Italian Pizza Oven). Your ashes will be arranged as a crust in a personalized pizza box. You choose the toppings. Do you want to sleep with the anchovies? Final accessories are up to you. 


You’ll be buried in the foothills of Rome while your family dines on pizza, pasta and gelato. Don’t worry about the carbs, you won’t gain a pound. 



Contact Paul Bearer, LLC International for a full listing of Destination Funeral Packages. We know you’re dying to hear more about our exclusive services. Why take a dirt nap in suburbia when you can sleep for eternity in the cradle of the Renaissance?


Call 1-800-DECEASE. Our Eternal Rest Representatives are waiting for your first call to forever.

Waking Up in Vegas - Happy 2014!

Neither, Gary or I, are really gamblers, so we try to find other activities to occupy our time when visiting Vegas. We have visited Red Rock, Hoover Dam and Valley of Fire State Park on previous visits. We had even traveled as far as Zion National Park in Utah, during an earlier stay. There are definitely natural beauties to discover while in Nevada, and they have nothing to do with showgirls or stripper poles. This visit was about relaxation and ringing in the New Year, so we didn’t need to stray far from Vegas this time. We bought tickets for a concert featuring Kristin Chenoweth. She is a very talented singer and actress best known from Broadway shows, movies, and multiple guest appearances on GLEE. The concert was on New Year’s Eve at the newly built Smith Center. Although she is about three feet tall, Kristin has a powerhouse voice. She sang songs from her career and, of course, sang one of my favorites “For Good” from WICKED. It was a great way to

Mental Health - Destroy the Stigma

I believe that I am a fearless writer. I share my personal experiences, thoughts and beliefs. I’ve not been afraid to express my emotions. Self-expression is fundamental to writing. I am a man of my words Recently, I became concerned that my blogs about depression and mental health might shape my reader’s opinions of me in a negative way.   The more I thought about it, I realized that I had internalized the stigma that surrounds mental health. Stigma is defined as “a mark of disgrace or infamy.” The word bears a negative connotation and it devalues the person to whom the stigma is applied. While the conversation about mental health is receiving a larger forum, damaging misconceptions are widespread. According to surveys, there are between 42.5-46 million adults in the US that have some type of mental illness.   Statistics show that one in four adults experience mental illness in a given year. These numbers of individuals are all impacted in some manner by the sti

Summer Adventures Part 2 – The Backyard Backlot to Broadway

  My childhood summers weren’t all the glitz and glamor of vacationing with cousins, wobbly shopping carts and bloody feet. Actually, most of my summer days were spent right at home in my yard. My parents never took a vacation. Our family never packed its bags and took off for other ports of call.   I never boarded a plane, a boat, or a train for a family adventure. My adventures were self-created. They were products of an imaginative mind that could travel to the moon, ride the rapids in the Amazon Jungle and lead a battle for the Knights of the Round Table, all before a lunch of Spaghettios with a side of Hawaiian Punch . I have always loved going to the movies. This helped provide the inspiration to my over active mind. The Saturday afternoon matinee was a childhood staple for me. The smell of fresh popcorn as you entered the lobby and the crisp cold air of the air-conditioned theater helped set the atmosphere on those hot, summer afternoons. I would get lost in the dark with

Depression, Drugs & DNA

When diagnosed with Clinical Depression, my doctor recommended medication to help the illness. The art of medication management can challenge professionals who need to find the right drug and dosage that will be effective for treatment. It’s frustrating for patients combating the effects of depression when their medication doesn’t quite alleviate the symptoms. Part of this cocktail of drugs can also cause intolerable side effects ·       Sleepiness ·       Insomnia ·       Dizziness ·       Weight Gain ·       Headaches ·       Increased Anxiety ·       Sexual Problems ·       Nausea The feeling of hopelessness and frustration is just compounded when you’re waiting for relief that never really arrives. There are so many drugs available for the treatment of depression. It can be daunting to find the right one for you. I feel that I have taken the PDR of depression medications. There’s always been the chase for the one that would tu

Communication - The Art of Words

I read a posting, a few weeks ago, that the song “Enjoy the Silence” by Depeche Mode was celebrating its 25 th anniversary. The song, released in 1990, speaks of how you can be beyond words. It relays the message that there are times when words can’t describe feelings or emotions and seem inconsequential. I do understand when people say that something is “indescribable.” We all have moments when we just want silence and time to appreciate the world beyond words.   A feeling or an emotion can be hard to verbalize at times, but are we ever beyond words? We have to realize that if we want a space of non-communication we have to communicate that. We can’t “Enjoy the Silence” unless we can tell everyone we want silence.   For people to know we are at a loss for words, we have to tell them that. Everything we say and do lies in communication. We could not function as a community or a society without it. We don’t stop to contemplate that our whole world is created fro
