WYR be buried or cremated? Why? adult content

I am going to be cremated, simply stated... b/c of cost.
I would rather leave the money expended on funeral expense to those I love so they could use it now. Just have a simple memorial and do not make others "rich" off me when I go.

  • Cremated...because I plan on donating whatever organs are still viable, the cost is much less, and hubby and I aren't sure where we will live when we're retired. When we do move to our final city/state, we want to be buried together, and so having either one's ashes means we can purchase a family plot and all be together.

  • Cremated. I also do not like the idea of spending so much money. Also, I think seeing someone in a casket can be traumitizing. I also just don't like the idea of being in the ground.

  • Cremated. I don't want to rot in a box, simple as that.

  • I choose cremation too! It does not cost a lot plus it does not take up a ton of room on this earth!

  • Cremated. Why take up space in the ground? Instead of having a bunch of cemeteries all around, they could use that land for something else. I also think that getting a box to rot in is just wasteful.

  • Cremated. The land is for the living and far too much of it is taken up by bones in boxes.
