You are near the end of your life and are going to be cremated. Where do you tell your family to spread your ashes?

Since I'd be dead I don't really care what they do with my burnt remains I guess. That's for them to decide.

Keep me in a nice urn on the mantelpiece next to my parents. You can spread any cremains that don't fit from the balcony of my 11th floor condo on the beach at Daytona.

Either at the National Arboretum, or on the grounds of a public library.

Pour my ashes into the center of a stripper pole...but NOT where they have male dancers!

To quote Rodney Carrington in the chili at the wake. I want everybody to have a little piece of me when I'm gone.

Assuming that launching me into orbit isn't going to happen, toss me on the closest democrat

It would have to be kept on the DL, but Sleepy Hollow State Park. There's no ash scattering police. And there's only one person I would want to do it.

I don't want to be scattered. I want to be compressed... Into a diamond.

Have you seen the PRICE of that? It's ridiculous.

As long as you aren't going for a hurking diamond, I thought it was about comparable to being put in the ground.

That should have been prefaced with: After doing a fair bit of research.

Hopefully everyone is aware that, in most places, it's illegal to scatter your loved ones ashes anywhere.

Why? It's just ashes so what's the big deal?

It's considered biological waste and should be disposed of as such. I don't agree but that's how it is in FL.

The family of a friend who recently died had some fireworks so they had a big bonfire and stayed until only the embers glowed, then shot off the fireworks with mom attached to them. (They are not in a fire hazard area.)

Not near a church or any place like that. Maybe a park.

Whatever they want to do with mine. Don't care.

My dad, aunt, and uncles each have a necklace with a bit of my grandfather's ashes in it. Ex. My dad has a fish (we had boats with him). I often wonder what's in there. A toe? His left arm?

Or ashes scooped up from the customer before him because they don't really keep them separate.

I'm dead so it makes no difference to me. I'll be up in heaven not caring where my ashes are.

Give some of my ashes to each family member and let them each pick a place that reminds them of me. Save a little to be taken out to sea twenty miles off of the Outer Banks in NC so the fish can nibble on me as I have enjoyed catching them.
