The topic: Ponderance
Brian and I have discussed how to dispose of our bodies when we die. We're to be parted out (take what ya need, we're not going to be using it) and burn what's left over.
I always kind of thought it would be neat to have my ashes scattered at Disneyland. Whatever is done with them, I don't want them in an urn on someone's hearth. I want them gone, scattered to the wind.
And after watching the news the past week, I know that's the best decision. I can't even imagine the horror of having the bodies rise up from their graves. Too "Poltergeist" for my tender sensiblities.
"Hey, look, isn't that Dianne?"........uh uh, not me. When I'm gone, I'm gone.

I put in my will I'm to be cremated and my ashes scattered over the Gulf of Mexico. I still might end up all over the US if a hurricanes blows in soon thereafter. No ground burial for me. Ashes to ashes.

I AM TO BE CREAMATED. I DON'T WANT TO BE EATEN BY BUGS, WALKED ON BY PEOPLE AND PEED ON BY DOGS FOR THE REST OF ETERNITY.

All my life I always walked a wide berth around tombstones. I always thought that people were buried with their heads up near the tombstones. Well, apparently that's not always the case. I guess people normally are buried facing east. So all this time I was stepping on someone's head 6 feet down!

We've requested a direct creamation, no embalming, no lying in state. If they want to have a memorial that's fine, but I don't want my body there. Everyone I have lost I remember first how they looked in the coffin. I don't want that for my kids.
