3. My grandmother told her daughter-in-law she would burn twice

if she was cremated.

I've laughed at that one for years. She was one of a kind.

4. Your wife's motive:

She wants you to have a smokin' hot body.

10. I cannot tell you how much I needed that laugh!

Flew to Florida 3 weeks ago to help dad though a hospitalization and rehab. Had a setback today and sitting in my hotel trying to wind down and get some sleep. I clicked on your post and fell out laughing!

THANK YOU!

11. All my immediate family are cremated

I have their ashes. Now I need to do something about the ashes because I want to be cremated also. What should I do? I had my mother and my son cremated. What do I do now?

18. my cousin & i talked about that (years ago)

she pointed out we're leaving a lot of ashes for our daughters to deal with (pets included)
she said we should have a "scattering party"
it sounded like a good idea -- in theory
...
perhaps our daughters can have that scattering party

13. "And there sat Ray, looking cool and calm, in the heart of the furnace roar...

And he wore a smile you could see a mile, and he said: "Please close that door.
It's fine in here, but I greatly fear you'll let in the cold and stormó
Since I left Plumtree, down in Tennessee, it's the FIRST TIME I've been warm!"

20. Cemetery in southern N.J. has natural burials.

No embalming. Just put your carcass in a shroud and someone digs a hole and puts you in it.


Better for the environment than cremation.
