Good morning Clive and Abe,
Further to this issue of being cremated and the fact that generally six people will be cremated at once and the ashes can't be sorted out, the only benefit I can see with cremation is that you get to annoy five other families for the rest of eternity…can you imagine being stuck with me for eternity? I think you'd go peculiar.
And if the ashes were spread on the backyard, the property would get sold every few months by deranged people. I don't think anybody could put up with me all the time…even I need a break sometimes.
