    Totally Morbid

    What do you want done with your body when you die?

    Buried? Cremated? Something else?

    If cremated: what do you want done with your ashes?

    If something else: explain please.

    Shot into outer space, like they do in startrek.


    Honestly, I don't care. Whatever makes things easier for my children. I want my parents to be buried because I want an actual place I can visit. If my children want that for them with me, that's fine. If not, cremate me, turn me into a diamond, I don't care.

    I'm not sure. Thinking about being dead creeps me out. I want to go with cremated... but I want to make sure that before they do anything, they make sure I'm really fucking dead. Like I don't want to be buried or cremated while I'm still accidentally alive. Screw that... kill me again after you think I'm dead. Then I suppose I don't care. I don't think I want my ashes in someone's living room in an urn, but I like the idea of being cremated and having my ashes spread somewhere that was meaningful to me. I don't want my family to waste tons of money on wakes and funeral costs. I don't want anything at a church. I'd prefer a more joyful memorial ceremony and something special just for my family to spread my ashes.

    I want to be cremated and part of my ashes turned into diamonds. One for DH and one for each child.

    As for the rest of my ashes...dump them somewhere..just PLEASE don't keep me in an urn!

    I don't find it morbid at all - but that may just be me.

    I want to be cremated. For the longest time, I wanted my ashes spread in northern New Mexico. Now, I would have them spread near a river here. (Or split and spread.)

    Last I knew, DH wanted to be cremated and his ashes placed in a veterans' cemetery.

    If I'm cremated, I won't have to worry how to spell "cemetery" any more.
