We all know that people will all die eventually, we just do not know when, how, what, where and whom. Now... the question is.... Which do you prefer? To be buried? To be cremated? Mummified? Preserved? And why? For me i think if not cremated... Be buried at the back of my house.. So that even if i am already dead they can still see me everyday. And remember me as a member of the family who never forgets and will always love them no matter where i go. And 1 thing cause i noticed other people that if their family member is already dead, that's it for them they did not even visit them at the cemetery or clean the cemetery or just even put some flowers.

Hi RJ, when i die i want to be cremated and my ashes to stay with my family for awhile. then then can bring me to the church or a place where my ashes will be placed and that placed be accessible for my family to visit. i am considering the fact that i be preserved so that the next generation of my kin will still see me or will have an idea about how i look and how i live fully my life in this world!

I will prefer to be burried. Infact, not prefer, it is the rule of my religion. I will prefer to be burried close to my family residence location. It is very pathetic, if people does not visit their close relatives cemetry. Really pathetic!

before i get to that part, i'd like to first donate my kidney, my bone marrow and my eyes. i won't be needing those things where i am going. Those body parts of mine are still needed by the world and im willing to give it. Its not that noticable if i no longer have bone marrow or a kidney and my eyes are closed shut once im in the casket. After that i choose to be buried, the normal way. In that manner the people i love don't have to get a big deal of money. I'd also like a necrological service before my loved ones bring me to where i started. I would like to put within my grave stone: "Always remember there will come a time that you will laugh at all the pains you endure now and until that day comes, stay strong."

When I was younger I alway knew I didn't want to be buried in the ground. I then thought I wanted to be put into a mansoleum. Now as I have gotten a little older I have decided it might be easier just to be cremated. I know family members will not like this but we are running out of space on this earth for cemetaries and I don't want my girls to feel obiligated to come and visit me in a cemetary.

I don't want to waste when I die. And I don't want to make the pollution for the environment. If I die, I want to donate all of my useful organs to the people who are in need. Then my body will be burned into ash. Half of the ash will be buried for the tree. And the rest will be thrown to the ocean. I love China
