    Awwwwwwwww, carry on Skinny Smith.

    I can see how they thought it was sand in a bottle. I was surprised when we took some of my dad's ashes out to go to Lake Meade. I thought it would be ashes like regular ashes. They are like "sand in a bottle".

    Bless his wife. Such a young woman to lose the love of her life.

    I blame American education. Where does she think a bottle tossed into the ocean ends up?

    Calcium is what is left after cremation,soft tissues vaporize and bone turns to powder.
    Mr. Smith if that rum is Bacardi you may make friends with my mother,Becky. Her ashes were scattered off West Palm Beach.

    I think it was the whole point that the bottle would end up on various shores. It's not like the other story a while ago when someone dumped a body in the ocean hoping it would stay there and were shocked when it washed up on the shore.

    Donjeta, my post was just a joke. Not a very successful joke, as it turns out. :)
