Re: Cremation Integration

Personally, my instructions to my kids is that I am to be buried, not cremated (that may follow) hence the 'unscripted' memorial - In this regard I am open to suggestions - "I told you I was sick" is a good one but it's already been used.

Have you heard about the new eco friendly Green cremation is a gentle, eco-friendly alternative to flame-based cremation or casket burials. It is a quiet process that uses water and potassium hydroxide to reduce the body to its basic element of bone ash. The ashes are then returned to the family.

Also, an interesting broadcast on ABC Radio National presented by Robyn Williams on Natural Burial:
"Cremation in a coffin produces 160Kg of carbon dioxide. An alternative is cardboard coffins and biodegradable shrouds. Some are suggesting the establishment of burial grounds in forests, so that decomposing bodies eventually become sequestered into the wood of trees, rather than becoming gaseous carbon dioxide, adding to an already overloaded atmosphere."
