  • Weird. I personally wish to be creamated..if that is spelled right. I think spending all that money on a casket, land, etc is crazy. My grandparents, parents, most of my family want to be creamated. Then have a memorial stone for loved ones to visit.

  • Why not, I would be happy with a cardboard box if the health department would allow it. I think spending thousands of dollars on a death ceremony is crazy! I would never want my husband to spend that on my funeral if I went first. Put me in the ground the cheapest way you can, it's not like I'm going to be using that fancy box, the hundreds of dying flowers or the well meaning plants sent in my memory.  Instead, I would want people to donate to a charity in my memory and keep the flowers for the living.

  • I didn't believe it until I looked it up. Wow. It reminds me of the movie Employee of the Month where that woman bought a casket and it was wheeled out to her car. I hope I never have to see that. So far the website says not available in stores. I hope that continues.
