hi all i personaly would prefere to be burried when i die so atleast my family can come to pay there respects to me at my grave. i feel when you are burnt that its a horrible thought as it feels like there nothing left at all of that person and you cant go to pay your respects to them. what are you thoughts on this?

Personally I want to be cremated. I am originally from Scotland and would like my family to take my ashes back and scatter them there. My Mom was cremated and the service was just as touching and personal without the body being on display.

in the "burning" tradition, I think the family will get some of the ash home so that they can remember this family member 'cause usually a pot filled with the ash is put aside with his/her photo. For myself I prefer be burried since it's my tradition and rules from my religion
