I have already discussed this with my daughters. If the manner of my death is such that there are any usable parts to be donated to the living, that gets first priority. Then, the local med school can claim whatever it wants for research, teaching or whatever. Anything left over gets cremated. Only thing not decided yet is where I want the ashes scattered. I did tell the girls that if I die before the decision is made, they should scatter me someplace wild and unspoiled.

I told my husband I was going to stuff him and put him on the couch with a playstation control in one hand and a beer in another. Unfortunately he enlisted my mother's help and now he will be cremated and place in the family crypt on the family farm.

I was kinda of hoping I would be able to have him around forever. Like scare the new boyfriends.

My husband has a bad heart and has had several small heart attacks. His arrangements have been made since the last attack. My has yet to be discussed with my children who are 13 years old at the moment. I thought I would wait a few more years and no scare the pants off them yet.

Welldone, 3Ravens! I have a card as a donor for many, many years now so that they can take anything useful of my body after death, too. The "rest" will be cremated then.

Oh yea, I forgot the donor thing. I have been signed up to be an organ donor for 20 years. Not sure anyone would want what's left of me anymore tongue.gif Then I get to be cremated and sent down the river. Preferrably it will be in early July for the big hatch or possibly in August when the hoppers are on.

Sounds like I'm the only one weirded out by the idea of cremation.

I guess I like the burial plot idea because I like cemeteries. When I was young my grandfather used to tell me stories of his relations so that when I went to the cemetery I then felt connected with them. And the headstones always fascinated me. Reading the dates to see how old they were, wondering what happened to them. There is one of a fellow who died in the War to End All Wars that has his picture in porcelin on the headstone. His name was Jolly. Maybe it's just a writer's imagination, but I find a lot of inspiration from reading headstones. And cemeteries are so peaceful, especially the old ones with towering trees and flowering shrubs planted generations before.

CR, A great deal of the people in my area do not believe in cremation because they believe they need this earthly body to go to their "planet" with is perceived as heaven, or the kingdom, they will go to. I think that's one of the reasons I can't consider the cemetary thing. They hold too much stock in the piece of ground and the whole body thing.

You are right, cemetaries are quiet and peaceful and have way cool headstones and stories. Good point, woman!

Hey Janey! It's me Elspeth, not CR!

I'm not against cremation in principle. It just creeps me out. Maybe it's the connection with the flames of hell or the pictures of the ovens used during the Holocaust. Whatever it is, I don't want to burn. Worms and creepy crawlies are more my speed. Weird, I know. I won't know the difference but we all have our quirks.

Sorry, Elspeth, I'm really having a Monday morning!!

You make me smile -- worms and creepie crawlies -- ::yuck I know what you are talking about. I'm just glad that when the time comes I won't be here to worry about it. I get to go flyfishing and maybe play a round of golf with my mom biggrin.gif

I do love to wander old cemetaries right now. They are so awsome!
