Check out the names of those involved... Also, we've got some experts over here who could have helped out. Anonymously.

Spade and Boggs :lol:

In the end, whether it's cremation, burial or "recomposing", we all return to the earth as part of the carbon cycle. I've always wanted to be cremated, with the ashes scattered somewhere that will hopefully be special for swmbo and I. When we scattered my grandparents' ashes, it was at their favourite local spot. After death, I'd no longer have no need for my body so it really is for the people we leave behind.

I'm getting cremated (might not even be my choice come the time, plots are filling up). Don't give a stuff what anyone does with the ashes tbh. Though it'd be nice if they could be thrown in some Shinner's face or something :lol:

I think I'd quite like to be buried then have a tree planted on top of me so it can feed off the corpse.
