  • I want to be cremated, with no big fuss. I don't want a viewing or anything like that. If people want to get together to remember me I'd rather them throw like a potluck or something where they can be happy, instead of grieving in a church.

  • i think burial is pretty disgusting. i vote no on being dressed up some like weird zombie preparing to come back to live and rotting in a decorative box. cremation please.

  • Cremation for me! Then I don't care what is done with my ashes. But I certainly hope my family gets rid of them. I can't stand the thought of them having to keep them for sentimental reasons.

  • I'm hoping green burial is an option here by that time. I would prefer not to be embalmed... Beyond that, I'm really not picky... Hell, I don't even care if I am buried... I would be fine simply being donated to science, but my DH made me promise not to set that up because he doesn't believe in it...

  • Whatever who's left behind needs to do to be at peace. Personally, I don't care. I'm dead.

  • I have told my children to do what ever they need to do. If they don't feel the need for a funeral, just cremate me or donate me. I would love to be donated to the Body Farm in Tennessee but you have to set that up ahead of time and I don't want to do something that might upset my kids. After all they are the ones who will be dealing with things, I'll be dead.
