 So I'm at the gas station getting gas and as I look in the backseat I notice my son is in the trunk. I ask my mother what he was doing in the trunk and she told me she didn't know. I asked him what he was doing and he said he was talking to my dad (grandpa to him). He asked him "How is life in heaven?" I told him he couldn't talk to dead people. (My dad died last year and we had him cremated, the box is in my trunk)

He said sometimes if you are really quiet you can hear God talking to you. Hearing him say that made my night a little bit better. I know God is around at all times but sometimes in the rush of things and life I tend to forget so I'm glad he gave me a reminder :)

Just re-read your post. I live in NC as well. I didnt know you had to have a permit to do that. Hmm... Learn something new everyday huh?

Quoting Cenedra64:

A gal i worked with did same. She wss waiting on permits. Yeah here in NC you have to have permits to spread ashes over the ocean even. I told her noone is going to be watching if you go out on a boat. Take your dad out the trunk and go obey his dying wishes

Quoting zombiemommeh:

Aw :)
After my dad was cremated, the box was in our car until we could decide on a place to spread his ashes. That was one of his favorite places to be, in the car.

He wasn't in the trunk. Just the car, like always. It was a few months until everyone could decide on a place we thought he'd have wanted.
