Morbid Subject On My Mind: Burial or Cremation

Illustration for article titled Morbid Subject On My Mind: Burial or Cremation

I was listening to the radio this morning and an ad came on about Forest Lawn Cemetery. The ad had the voices of three sisters visiting their mother's grave. They were initially happy, saying "Hey mom!" as though she were actually there. Then one sister says in a broken voice, "Wish you were here."

That got me thinking about what I want to become of my body when I die. My mom wants to be cremated and have her ashes spread in the ocean. She says she doesn't want a permanent totem to her death in the form of a gravesite.

After giving it a lot of thought, I figure I want to be cremated as well. As a young person, I don't think about what will happen after my inevitable death very much. But I suppose I should as I don't know for sure when it'll happen.
