This is something I talked to my mom about when my aunt died and the same thought went through my head during MJ's memorial. When we die, no matter what we believe, does it matter what the container is made of? I can be buried in a wooden box for all I care it is not like I plan to remodel and paint once I am at my final resting point. Wouldn't the money be better spent starting a fund or helping those still living?
I will say one thing, when they say you can't take it with you---that was just proven wrong.

It doesn't matter in a functional sense. But when you think of the fact that 20% of Jackson's estate is going to charity, I don't see what it matters if they casket is worth $10,000... Personally we are building a mausoleum for ourselves. My DH is afraid of tight spaces and is afraid of being prematurely interred. I do not plan on allowing funerals for either of us and embalming is a huge unnecessary item. So we will not be buried. Eccentric? Yep. That's how I live life, that's how I plan to die.
