My hubby and I want to be cremated and hold onto the ashes until the other passes and then have our ashes mixed together. Weird and creepy, I know but we want to be together. Then our family can bury us together. Hopefully thats the plan if die of old age. My family was weirded out when I told them, but now they understand and will do it.

I'm not sure whether I want to be cremated or buried. I thought I wanted to be cremated. I thought it would be better but I have since had several deaths in my family and I'm not sure if cremation is the answer or not. I think I would rather be cremated but can't decide if I want to be burn't and have my ashes buried or if I want to be in a casket in the ground and have all kinds of bugs and worms crawl all over me. I know either way I won't be alive to know the difference but its still something that I can't come to terms with.

i want to be cremated. i think it is less expensive, and i don't have to buy a burial plot then.

i think that's probably the biggest reason most people are in favor of cremation.

it might be a good idea to think about it and when you make a decisin let your loved ones know. life is shorter than we think. i've lost some folks i loved before i thought they would be taken from me. it's always nice to know what they want before they pass over to the other side. let us know when you make a decision, ok?

I definitely don't want to be cremated. So I guess that leaves to be buried.

That's a good one panthertrack. I saw the movie and I liked it. I would like to be cremated and have my family wear my ashes in little lockets as a necklace. This way I will always be with them.

i want to be cremated, burial is just too much fuss. im returning my body to earth anyway, so i just want to speed up the process.

It might sound philosophical but the reality is that whether buried or cremated, I want to be loved or remembered after I am no more....

I would prefer to be cremated, for a few different reasons..Maybe even have my ashes spread over a particular place that is most dear to me, or to have the ashes put into an urn, or some in different smaller urns that would allow the closest ones to my heart, who would want to 'preserve' me in that way, to do so~
