Funerals aren't bound to any one form of body-disposal.

Right. All four members of my immediate family have died, all were cremated, one of the four had his ashes scattered at a favorite spot -- but all four had pretty standard funerals.

RE: The Taste of Blood
We had a memorial for mom, she was well known in the community and a couple hundred attended. It did flow along the lines that she wanted. She requested "Alice's Restaurant" be played, and we did indeed sing along to that. People got up and took the microphone, talked about her and the good times. No woo WHAT-SO-EVER! Smile
Dad, we did as he wished too and scattered his ashes off Point Wilson in Port Townsend. That was pretty cool, several boats, flowers on the water. Not much needed be said.
My wife's mother is the only recent traditional burial. Her dad, I took his ashes along with another friend's ashes up in the plane. My wife, the friend's wife and daughter came along and we scattered those two on the flanks of Mt. Rainier and also in the Pacific off Grays Harbor. When you cover ground at 200 miles an hour a second spot is not much of a consideration.
Both were favorite places for the two guys who did not know each other in life.

I'm thinking that I'll just donate my remains to a body farm. That'll give grad students something to do.

The family can print up cheap plaques with an epitaph to hang on the wall or something.

Yes! This is something my mom and I have talked about. There's a big one in Tennessee that we'd probably donate to.

He doesn't go anywhere without it. Probably showers with his gun or perhaps has gun shaped soap.
