Burn my body, please
. I want to be cremated
when I die
. I think cremation is the only honorable
thing to have done with your body
these days. The land used for cemeteries
could be put to much better use. Maybe I just don't like the idea of my body rotting
in the ground for years and years
. It isn't like your body
is going back to the earth anytime soon. A lot of preservatives
are used in burial
s so your body is laying there, six feet under
, for a long freaking time
A typically cremation is performed by placing the body in a coffin and burning the body and the coffin. I could do with out the coffin and would prefer a funeral pyre. Burned out in the open in a big field. Health boards might have something to say about that though. And it might be a little conceited.
After a cremation some people like to keep the ashes in an urn and take their dead loved ones home. Personally I think that is sick. For the same reasons I want my body burned I don't want anybody keeping the ashes either. I might be ok with my ashes being placed in an ashes cemetery (I don't know what they are really called). I would prefer to have my ashes spread. I really don't care where, over land, over sea, it really doesn't matter just get rid of them.
