I remember singing the old song, "the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out..."

 Then, during the 80's  a group KANSAS came out with DUST IN THE WIND.

I had a heart to heart talk with both of my sons while they were 18 and 21. we all decided on being cremated rather than having a casket and a big hole in the ground.

 yep same here with me.  My dad had it done and my mom says she also wants it done.  My dh/dd's are still not sure lol..

I told dh if we have the money when I die (he said he FIND it) I want my ashes made into a diamond that younger dd wants-she said she'd wear it always..awww.  And, he can do the same with him & oldest dd if they'd like... I just don't wanna "sit" around in a vase/urn LOL..

*raises hand*

me too... I would rather be cremated.  The idea of having a grave seems burdensome to the living.  I would hate for my kids to feel any guilt over not "visiting"me.  I rather be scattered some where and be done with it.

I will be cremated and my remains buried beside my husband...no casket but a place for loved ones to visit. It is a lot cheaper and you can rent a casket for viewing.

Up in smoke for sure for me. I don't see the point in the other. I just wish they hadn't made cremation so expensive in the last decade.

I'm amazed to find more people choosing cremation over burial. Who wants to tie up that plot of land? "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust."

 I believe the cost is increasing because of the economy, and more people are choosing it nowadays.

I prefer to be cremated.  I also don't want to be kept on a shelf somewhere.  Use my ashes to fertilize some flowers or dump me in the ocean.
