Both my hubby and I want to be cremated and have our ashes scattered somewhere meaningful. We don't have kids and I really don't expect nieces and nephews to come and visit our gravesites, so what is the point of us having a plot with a headstone.
I don't really care. Cremated because it takes up less room. But I think given to science, so I think they just bin you at the end and give the family a plaque. I have no idea if they actually cremate you (It would be a hygiene thing surely?)
If memory serves me . . . after one year they give the family the majority of the body back and after three years they give the family a large portion of the body back. You can donate your body for different lengths of time. My friend is doing this. (and I think the researchers keep the brain . . . ) Or . . it is a variation of this from state to state. Is there a doctor in the house?
Defiantly cremation. Iíve always loved the idea of going up in smoke, in a cardboard box, painted with flamingos & tulips! Iíd also loved the idea of having my ashes thrown over the side of a a cruse ship, but since that is not allowed these days, off the Manly ferry will have to do instead! (As long as the wind isnít blowing in the wrong direction, for the family members doing this for me!)
I feel that I want to be cremated, then have my ashes scattered I'm not sure where, the burials is an on going cost of the grave site, and I don't want any ads in the paper as I think it's a waste of money, the memory always stays in the heart of a loved one, no ad will ever change that.
