Re: Cremation/Burial

  • Same with my parents and me - we all want to be cremated, and want no one to spend money - don't buy any expensive container.

    There is this other idea somewhere in Montana or someplace where they do a green burial and put you in a cardboard box, bury you and plant a tree over you. You nurish the tree and eventually the cemetary becomes a woods... Kinda interesting

  • I really don't care what they do with me when I die - you can donate me to science, let me blow away in the wind, burry me in the ground . . . doesn't matter.

    I think we'd go the more "traditional" route with plots, and markers, but really I'd be fine in a coffee can.

    We haven't really discussed this.

  • My religious beleifs dictate that I be buried and not cremated. I have told DH ( and my family) that I want to be buried in a cheap pine box and not to spend a lot of money on me or the funeral. I don't actually want a funeral, but understand that some people need it to grieve.

    I don't want any flowers at all. I'd prefer the money be donated to a worthy cause then spent on flowers that will die soon after.

    My family has always been open about talking about his. In fact, my father annouced his wishesat Thanksgiving once. He wanted to let the extended family know his wishes, so they wouldn't be mad or take it out on whomever was left to make the calls. Also it's good to know people's wishes. So much other stuff is going on during that time, that I think it makes it a little easier to know and do things that person would have wanted.

  • I haven't thought that far ahead...I'm half tempted to think about donating my body, but I'm not set in stone on that, so I just voting other.

  • I honestly don't care what they do with me after I am gone. They can bury me, cremate me, whatever. I think my family would want a burial, that's what we've always done for our family members unless they have made their wishes known.?

    DH wants to be cremated, no IFs, ANDs, or BUTs about it. He has made his wishes known to all of his family as well. ?

    Finally a Mrs as of June 7, 2008

  • I want to be creameted then buried. I don't want to be displayed in a urn and moved around, etc that's alittle weird to me. I've discussed with my immediate family and DH, that I in no way want to be embalmed! Please "display" me cold and with my organs still intacked, thank you!!!

  • I go back and forth on this.  I think if I am in a healthy enough state that I can donate organs then I would like to do that.  Beyond that, I cannot decide.  I think if I were cremated, I would want my ashes to be thrown out across the ocean or something.  I would like my family to use the money they would normally spend on a funeral and take a vacation to spread my ashes.  I am not set on that though...sometimes when I think about it, I want to be buried. 
  • I want to be cremated and to have a tree planted over me, but my family hates this idea and it actually almost made my mom cry when I told her that... I will probably do what DH wants to do.  If he wants to be cremated, I will be too, but if he wants a burial, I'll be buried next to him.

    The one thing I know for sure, more than anything else, is that I do not want people to send flowers but instead donate any money they would have spent on a cause related to helping animals.
