What's your preference for a burial option?

Cremation? Dissolution? Pine casket? Launch me into space? Hang my casket from a cliff?(??)
For myself, I'm not sure I care much. Something hassle free would be good.
Here's an interesting and quick summary of some (with pictures!)

When one is married ,one must acquiescence to the others wishes to avoid discord. I did not really have a preference . My wife for years let me know she wanted us to be interred in a mausoleum . I reluctantly agreed many years ago and we purchassed two crypts.Now I am happy to report I am glad I agreed because I feel it is one thing less our daughter must have to deal with some day , and knowing exactly where you are going to end up is actually a comforting feeling due to it being in a beautiful cemetery near our home

I'm gonna mirror biopod, but I want mine to be a fruit tree, so I can have my loved ones send fruit from it to my enemies so they can eat me.

Ha. Now we could start a new thread on enemies. How to avoid having any...etc etc

Biopod. I want to be an Ash tree.

I want to fertilize one of those ancient oak trees that grow around the Gulf Coast

Throw me in a ditch. I don't care. I'll be dead.

Dissolution, the wave of the future. Hope I last long enough for my state to adopt it.

Cremation, ashes of my dog and my wife mixed with mine and scattered along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina.

fertilizing rhododendron and azaleas is a noble goal

And don't forget the mountain laurel!

I'm an organ donor but, at my age and the abuse I've given my organs, I hope they'll use my body for research or education...as if I'm going to care then anyway.

you could donate your body to an anatomy lab at a medical school

I might consider that...don't count me out just yet though!

at my age i think of that as a date

I am leaning toward aquamation and then having my remains sprinkled around a tree. It is promoted as being a more enviro-friendly alternative to cremation; but I need to look into it a bit more.

I was not aware of this procedure and from what I read ,this is indeed the most invironmentally exceptable process .I hope this is not only available in Australia as I read

Richiegtt:I live in a small town in Oregon and it has a place that offers aquamation.

Cremation, ashes scattered in the pacific

Curious. Why not skip the cremation and just have burial at sea? Fish food.

i bet there is some kind of restriction on that. there are even restrictions on scattering ashes in some places now

I scattered my moms ashes in the pacific. You can’t do it closer than 25 nautical miles from shore. As for burial at sea, I’ve never thought of it. It seems rather gruesome though.

Incinerated in a dumpster fire, charred remains hauled away by the garage truck.
