Have you told your family your wishes when you die?

As far as burial cremation services ect? I am following our religious guidelines. Washed, shrouded in a white sheet, prayed for at the mosque, and then buried no casket or embalming within 24 hours of death. My uncle just passed suddenly and it wasn't clear totally what he wanted. It took 2 weeks to cremate him.

Yes. But when I told my husband I wanted my ashes spread in three different places, he seemed a bit put out.

Awww why? Did he have something else in mind?

He thought I should be some place I could be visited. I don't feel the need to visit the grave sites of my loved ones so I didn't consider that my dh and ds might feel differently.

Cremation. I refuse to take up a plot of ground that could be used to grow food for future generations. And I'm not so vain as to think anyone's going to care who I was after I die, anyway.

Are you going to be burried then for them to have that?

Yes they know if possible to donate anything that could be used and then cremate me without embalming and dump me out somewhere. I don't want a burial site or headstone or viewing of the body. If they would like to give me a formal funeral than so be it but I don't care either way. I'd like as little fuss over my corpse as possible and to keep it as chemical free as possible.

Your children and grandchildren will.

Dh can do whatever he wants. For me, once I'm gone, whatever happens to my body is for the benefit of my loved ones. I wanted cremation and scattering because I didn't want to take up space, but I have no religious guidelines I need to follow so it truly doesn't matter to me.
