We had back to back girls' birthday party sleepovers this weekend. Two nights of screaming girls and I am more than ready for a quiet day.

QUOTE (Elspeth @ Apr 19 2004, 10:02 AM)
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.

I can understand that. But these days the worms can't even get to you. Because of the concrete crypt/seal that is put around the coffin.

Your comments on cremation remind me of my friend, Ric. His mother set him on fire when he was about 4-5. He was burned on 30% of his body. He says the flames tried to get him when he was a little one. He will just be completing the circle when he dies...... Just popped in m'head.. thought I would share it.

I'm still up in the air about it. My grand father was cremated. He sits in my aunts house some where in a box. There is no marker to even show he was here. I have thought about just buying a plot and putting a stone there just to say he was here. And for future family to find when working on family history.

I agree, Jason with your idea of a marker. There are those who will come after who will want to look up their dead ancestors. How many of us have done that in researching family tree? I have a friend who moved away after college. He lives far away from his place of birth, but wants to be buried amongst his ancestors. His wife, however, doesn't. I've thought for him as well the answer might be a marker, remembering his place in the family even if he is buried elsewhere.

I like cemetaries too, Elspeth. I just don't want to be in one. LOL I have a friend from England who is a photographer and she has recently taken some really neat photos of the grave yards there. Really very beautiful. I would love to go through them.

I plan to be cremated. I would like to have my ashes spread in the Great Smoky Mountains where I grew up. I have lived away from my beloved mountains since 1974 but they still call to me. I would like my final resting place to be where the wildflowers bloom and the winds blow free.

Interesting topic (but from Peck, I expect nothing less!). I will probably be buried in as close as I can to my family plot in Hatboro, PA. My grandparents and other relatives are there, and my Mom and Dad have a plot there as well.

One of my close friends suddenly died this January (he was only 24... sad.gif ) and his folks had him cremated. I sometimes wish I had a place where I could visit him. I frequently go and hang out with my Grandmothers, who are buried next to each other. "There is a stillness there, thankful found"

Hey Perckey if geanealogy is of any interest of you. Being buried in the family plot might make it easier for future Perkery Historians to see your stone and follow check out the Monkey Family

As far as being cremated or buried, try them both and choose one. beer_mug.gif
