Speaking of saving money for your kids and GKs -- I joked with my sister that when I am cremated, she should go to Hobby Lobby and buy a plain ginger jar or something similar for my ashes, and at my memorial service, there should be a sign by the urn that says "I am finally down to my ideal weight!"  Hah!   And sometime later, scatter my ashes somewhere in the desert.  I don't want to be made into a paperweight and spend eternity on somebody's desk, or a shelf at Goodwill.  LOL

no embalming, 

Another Aunt Margaret-ism, they won't transport a body across state lines without embalming. ( She lives in Missouri and will be buried in Kansas)

when my dad was cremated we HAD to purchase a container from the mortuary.  And the overall cost was not significantly less than a casket burial.

Actually, I plan on donating my body to science if they will have it.  Haven't checked into the process yet.  Then I believe they cremate the body when done and give it back to the family.  DD had to work on a body during PT school and they were taught to treat the body with respect.  All this talk about different caskets--I don't see why $$ ones for something only seen for a few hours.  My dad was on a cemetery board many years ago  and I remember him saying that no matter what the casket is, it has to be put in a concrete vault.  It was the law--at least here in Illinois.

I'm asking for prayers for my DB who is coming home from the hospital on hospice care today.  He and I are the only siblings and very, very close.  We're only 14 months apart and almost feel like twins.
