  • Both my parents and all of my grandparents were cremated so I guess it doesn't seem strange to me. I just don't want the last memory of me for my children of me laying in a casket looking like a wax figure... I want a closed casket at my wake, and not wearing some fancy dress I never wore when I was alive. Like my Mom I want to be in my favorite pajamas.

  • Cremated. I just can't bear the thought of bugs crawling in and out of my eye sockets!! Plus my family would be able to have my ashes and somehow feel that I'm there. My father was cremated (he passed away when I was 11) and I always loved having the urn around.
