I wouldn't care I would be dead.

Yes, I wouldn't want them taking up space.

If I was cremated, I'd want to be kept in an urn.

I want my ashes to be scattered in the San Francisco Bay. My home place.

Yes and no.

On one hand, if my ashes were scattered, they could be scattered in the Garden of the Gods, or on Pike's Peak.

On the other hand, I find the idea of living on someone's mantle kind of exciting.

It doesn't matter to me. Whatever my wife wants to do with them is fine.

I'd like to be scattered about. I think I'd like to be spread about my hometown.

I'm thinking that's what I want. I didn't come from a box (well, we all came from a box, but a different kind of box ) and I don't think I want to end up in one. Where my ashes are scattered doesn't really make any difference to me.

I agree.

Whatever gives the most comfort to those I leave behind is the most appropriate.

Yes. I don't want to be set on a fireplace.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 4/4/07 - 8:57:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I would. Preferably over the places that I loved the most.

no, I would want to be in a urn kept on the dinning room table. so that I could eat dinner with my family every night. haha

...I really don't care. My family could toss my corpse off a cliff into a cannibal village. Hey, that'd be awesome. Or blow me up.

I think that I would rather be scattered somewhere rather than have my family members keep me in an urn somewhere in their home.

I really wouldn't care to have a dead family member sitting on my shelf....

Probably. Then they wouldn't have to decide who gets to keep the dead girl.

I'd want them scattered, preferably by one of my loved ones while skydiving. Which would mean one of my surviving loved ones would have to have the balls to jump out of a plane.

My aunts and uncles separated my grandpa's ashes into six mini-urns. That's a little off, if you ask me.

No, I'd want to be put into a bottle.
