What do you want to do before you die?

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Have you ever heard of a bucket list? Well, owners at Peterson/Kraemer Funeral Home in Wausau want to hear what's on yours.

On Sunday, they unveiled their "Before I die I Want To.." wall. It's meant to serve as a space for people to write down their hopes and dreams, all the things they want to do before they die.

Funeral home owners say the wall is a celebration of life and what's ahead.

"Death can be a very somber, sad time and perhaps before there are regrets, things that aren't expressed, they should be written down, publicly stated and perhaps that will drive people to actually do them," said funeral home owner Greg Zoromski.

The idea started a few years ago in New Orleans. Since then, it's gained global attention.

Funeral home owners say the board will make its way around town so everyone can get a chance to write down what they want before they die.
