I've always wanted to be cremated, too. That tree urn that Fran posted looks AWESOME! Like sillysally said, having my ashes mixed in with my loved ones (human and animal) is something I'd like

There's been a lot of speculation as to how many odd bodies came in from the other side of the fence.

StephyMei summed up my feelings on it too. I want to slap people at funerals who photograph the body. Seriously? WTF???

My dad's parents and my parents have donated their bodies to LSU NO 's medical school. My brothers don't like it, but I'll admit I got a little bit of peace knowing my Dad's cancer-ridden body would be used to teach future doctors. Hopefully some more understanding of his rare type of cancer was gained from examining and studying his body.

We will get his ashes back when they're done.

I have a weird-ish disease, so I can't donate organs, unfortunately--that's what I'd really like done.

Since that won't be happening, I don't really care much. I don't want to be embalmed, though. I like the idea of going back into the hearth and nourishing plants.

Donate what organs can be used... After that whatever method brings my family the most comfort. I would like to be cremated but honestly I will be dead so I don't really care.

I want whatever if cheapest and easiest. I don't want an expensive funeral and don't care if I get a funeral. It's just a deteriorating shell imo. I've made sure none of my family will have to pay out of their pocket when I die so I'm leaving it to be whatever makes them feel best.
Thank you Vivien and Angel Chicken for the siggy! Also I have been frosted!!! And as of 9/13/07 I know the secret handshake!

I'm an organ donor and what's left I want to be cremated. After that it's up to whoever I've left behind. Whatever makes them feel good.
