Tuesdays with morrie

How does Morrie demonstrate a sense of humour when discussing his funeral plans with Al Axelrad, the rabbi from Brandeis

Answers 1

Morrie had decided to be cremated and in a joke with the rabbi, told him not to "overcook him." The rabbi was stunned, but Morrie could joke as he saw his body as a shell now, not himself. It was useless to him now, so it was easy to let it go.
