Griffin- the right tombstone could make a dandy benchrest...........

Family burial grounds used to be VERY common in the country- folks did not have the means of traveling for excessive distances. Some of my kin are buried about 200 yards from the house where I was born- there are about a dozen graves there, room for a few more.

I fish a good bit, and have already stated to those who have to deal with my dead ass that this is the most appealing option to me. Eternal Reefs, A Cremation Memorial Option

Myself- I plan to live forever (so far, so good ) but I did like one post on the forum: "I told my family to cremate me and pour my ashes into the wells of my enemies"

So- how do YOU plan on saying aloha? Forest Lawn? Flaming Viking ship? Have your body left in a booth at Waffle House? Scare the hell out of the lifeguard at the pool?
I'm leaving my body to science. Someone else may as well get some use out of it.

The best we can do is leave what's left over for the greater good of man-kind.

Just my .02

Gork- that really is rather nice. As opposed to being taken out to Harrison's Pier, and used as bait.

Surprised that no one selected the booth at Waffle House......

To save my wife some money I told her when the county calls to ask where to send the body she will just say to throw me in the dry wash behind the courthouse.
