My mom and dad just passed over the last 15 months.
Mom wanted to be cremated so we did. Like someone else said you have to have a burial 'vault' even for ashes.
We got a nice granite urn with intention of burying her ashes, however we have not got around to burying her yet.
She has a nice memorial spot in our living room with pictures of mom in happy times. The whole family has found this to be very comforting and have
chosen to keep mom at home. We may sell her 'plot' as my son has said he will take 'mom' when we pass.
My dad couldn't have been easier.
He donated his body to science and the whole process was free. They picked him up from where he passed and we will receive his 'remains' (ashes) when
they are done.
He will go on the shelf next to mom for now.
I have just signed up to donate my body too. I have had some interesting, rare procedures done. My only regret is that I wont be around to hear the
med students say WTF?!?. LoL
Funerals are all about the $$$.
ETA: We had awesome memorials at our church for free.
Donate your body so something good can come out of your rotting corpse.
