I know this is a little "different" for me, but I really would like your opinion on this.
My whole family, going back to when they came over on the boat through Ellis Island, has been buried in a little Serbia Eastern Orthodox Cementary in Los Angeles.( After they die, naturally) I now live in Indianapolis, and will NEVER return to that rat hole. My wife and I are in our mid forties and feel it is time to buy plots. rip_1.gif My question is should we be planted in our new home of Indianapolis or back in Los Angeles with my parents, aunts, uncles etc....???? Thanks king.gif

I'm still not to sure about being burried. i will probably go with cremation. There is a country here in the US that will use a special process of cremation and collection of the ashes and turn them into diamonds. They are called life gems. the first part of the process can be done at several points in the US. So they don't have to lug the body all over the place. The average body can produce over a 100 diamonds and they are working on going to one carat each and clear. Actually alls I really would want creamated and diamondized would be my brain eyes and heart. The rest of me I would just have put into a box. No embalming.

This isnt nearly as strange as a friend of mine in the army that had his whole body tatooed and wanted to be skinned and passed down to his children.

That's an honest question, Peckery. And something everyone *should* think about. It's better to get it out of the way, then to leave the burden on childern, or even worse the state. I guess it really depends on where your heart is.
Does that family 'plot' have a special place for you? ( In yer heart, that is...)
That's what it really comes down to. If it does, then maybe you should 'rest' with yer kin.


Cheers

Think about it if you must, but enjoy life and be prepared for tomorrows.

I don't understand the problem you are having with preparing for what happens to everyone.
I understand 'live life to the fullest', and do so.
But the small amount of time invested in some sort of preperation, will save family members having to do what should have already been done. On top of the grief, and heartache of losing said loved one. It's not morbid. It's thinking ahead, and considering loved ones feelings.
No body likes to talk about death. But it happens to all of us. Why not make arrangements to ease the pressure on loved ones. Then it is done, and doesn't ever have to be dealt with again... cheers.gif

I believe that by thinking about and planning the future now you save your family so much trouble in the future and allow them to live life to the fullest through your forethought.

My kids are under instruction to cast my ashes in the inlet of Little Sandy Lake in the the Bridger Wilderness in Wyoming. It is only fair that I wind up as trout food.

Because we all know that ashes are low in carbs... wink.gif

I also can speak freely about this. I made my peace with death a long time ago when a boy I went to school with (he was a year ahead of me, but we were involved in a lot of the same activities) died. I want to be buried, so that way my family can visit. about a year ago, I made a request to my family, that if it is God's will I be taken before them, to visit my grave on my birthday. I want to be buried at a Catholic cemetery, and we have two nice ones in our area-Holy Sepulchre in Worth and Resurrection in Justice.

Some pictures:
