im not sure which one of those i would rather have. im afraid of being underground but then again im afraid of being burnt too. i know you don't feel it, it's just the thought. good question tho

i prefer to follow the traditions of my family so i like to be buried instead of cremated. i believe that the body is sacred and i don't like the idea of being burned. i want my body to go back into ashes the natural way. it's better that way though it may be more costly that being cremated.

I will be buried. I have had my burial plot since my son passed away. I will be buried right next to him.

I would preferred to be cremated, and my ashes scattered over the river or sea. At least I would not take up any land (burial), or cause any financial burdens to my loved ones!

uhm...I think I'd rather be cremated, besides it's just the body not me when I die, what matters is where will my soul go.

I have always wanted to be cremated and have my ashes spread somewhere nice, like in the mountains. Cremation takes up energy though and I'd rather not have the last thing that I would ever do on this worth to have a negative impact on it as well. I also do not want to rot in some pine chest forever. After talking this over with my bf he gave me a really good idea thats not burial or cremation. He wants to just be buried without any kind of box, so he decomposes fully back into the earth. After hearing this I thought it would be a nice idea, and will request that in my will when I make one as I get older. Hopefully this is legal somewhere and can be done.
