OK, I'm not being morbid, it's interesting.

This got started in another thread and some interesting alternatives to 1-800-call an undertaker were shared.

So, how do you want it done?

I'd like to go the same way as most of the early civilizations....on a funeral pyre with a couple coins for the boatman.

As for me, I want to be wrapped in white linen, and slipped overboard, while a single piper blows Amazing Grace. Then everyone can have a few, and get on with fishing.

I'm still for being cremated and sprinkled over a freshly planted field of chili peppers. Something to do with fire and the principle of life continuing. smile.gif

I wonder what Emmet will think of all this. smile.gif

Not to spoil the solemnity, but it's making me think of a chili pepper ghost story . . . you know you're haunted if your corn flakes burn your face off.

Or something. tongue.gif

Told my wife I want to be cremated. She can do as she wishes with the ashes --- put 'em in an urn, a cardboard box, toss 'em in the wind, put 'em on the garden or flush 'em. Don't really care what's done with them. If there is to be a "service", I want "The Night Pat Murphy Died" to be taken as the prototype.

Footnote
Remember reading somwhere of a fellow who wanted to be cremated, his ashes mixed in a gallon of paint and the paint used to paint his widow's bedroom ceiling. unsure.gif

Since I won't be here I'm not really concerned with what happens to my remains, but... I have requested that a sailing buddy of mine (assuming he outlasts me) obtain a "I'd rather be sailing" bumper sticker, stick it on my coffin and replace the word "sailing" with "breathing". smile.gif

I think most of us have an irreverence to our own passing and I hope each of our families act in accordance with our wishes the thing is you got to let them know in advance.

Personally I certainly don't want any embalming done on my body I consider it a desecration, I want to be on the big table at my house for the wake, with all of my friends around, the bill for the drinks at the party needs to at least make everyones mouth drop. My funeral preperations which would include me wrapped in a linnen and then carried to the woods and burried on Cold Mountain NC I couldn't begin to guess how many people I have (in my family) burried in these mountains and there is no place I would rather store my frame in solitude.

John Prine had a good idea in his song "Please don't bury me" Reference http://www.cowboylyrics.com/lyrics/prine-j...y-me-10851.html

My arrangements are already made, on file in the courts, legally binding and everything. I'm to be cremated and my ashes fired from my own cannon at the next Alaska State Rendezvous. That should scatter me to the winds very nicely, at about 900 feet per second.
