    I've always wondered what to do with my ashes (when it's time for me to be ashes!) None of these options seems terribly exciting. Not sure why nothing isn't just grabbing my attention. The fireworks would be cool.

    Mostly, I don't want people spending a bunch of money. I don't want to sit on a fireplace mantel.

    Just scatter me somewhere...I just don't know where!

    I've known about the diamond one, and the space one... a place in Beltsville, here, does the diamond creation from ashes. Life Gems also does it for pets... I've already said that if something happens to my Kyrnan Kitty, I'd get her ashes made into a diamond.

    granted, but your cat is supremely awesome, so I don't blame you;)

    My favorite option for ashes is planting a tree with the ashes. There are numerous companies that do this. They mix your ashes in when they plant a tree, either a plaque on the tree, or in front of will bear the deceased name and dates of birth and death.

    Now there are just so many different options with urns, caskets and keepsakes. Your urn can be anything from a baseball to a paperweight. You can create a customize casket. Heck, the flowers from the funeral can be used to create a candle.

    In general however, most families will go with the traditional route when planning a funeral and services for the deceased, therefore most funeral homes/directors might not show families the different available options they have.

    Brr..There was a twilight zone episode where teenagers that didn't fit into a gated community standards were cremated and put around new trees in their parent's front lawn.

    To be honest I'd want a green funeral with a tree planted on top of me. :thumb:
