    I have always thought of that but my buds probably wouldn't be able to hit anything, so i wanna be creamated and put into ash trays down at the pool hall, that way after the end of a day when everyone is flicking there ashes on me, someone will look over and say "looks like mark gained a little weight today" mark crist

    Al Lewis, Grandpa on the Munsters TV series, was an avid cigar smoker in real life. When he died, his instructions were to cremate his body and bury him in a cigar box.

    It is a good thing that the late Senator Ted Kennedy was given a traditional burial. If cremated, the fire would have never burned out.

    Don't scatter ALL ashes. Once cremated, it is considered "final disposition" (In most states) Bury (some) of the cremains on an exiting lot, place a marker, which is provided free from VA if applicable. No need to buy a whole grave space, these cremains can be interred with minimal cost at the foot of graves all ready there, simple as that. A place needs to be dedicted to your life, so other's can see where you "somewhat" belong even though some has blown to the wind. Trust me on this one, I am a licensed Funeral Director, and I know what I'm talking about. One at a time folks, hope fall season treats you all well. GO BIG RED Jim from Nebraska

    Red Stiner of Iowa fame always wanted to make the 27 yard line. Some of his ashes lie on the 27 yard line at Newton, Ia. Way to go Red! D Winter

    I have had the idea that my. Ashes could be molded into clay targets. And at the funeral, my buddies could all have a little memorial shoot at me.

    Just had a memorial service for a long time shooter. I loaded him up in some loads with shot, and we broke targets with them. The remainder was spread over the two gun clubs he loved. RIP Jack
    My wife is having me loaded up (when I die) in shells with shot and sending my buddies out with my dogs to shoot some waterfowl and upland birds, great lady.
