    Cremating loved ones. How would you feel?

    Would it bother you if you had to cremate a loved one because they had no insurance

    It would be ok with me because I wouldn't actually be cremating my loved ones. I'd be cremating the remains of my loved ones. If they were still my loved ones they wouldn't be dead they'd be alive!

    It would bother me. I'm not a fan of cremation. We had to cremate our old dog and my aunt. It just seems empty. It's more depressing than their death because there is nothing to visit when they are gone.

    Im not a fan of it, but if that what my loved one wants..I would have to respect their wishes. I would rather them not be cremated, that way I could go visit their burial site, and think as them as partially still being here.

    My parents were cremated and I will be as well. My mom had this aversion, as do I - I cannot stand the idea of the body rotting in the ground. It is one of those things that creeps me out.  So I will opt for cremation.

    The thing is- how a person's remains are disposed of is entirely up to them, unless they pass without any indication of what their wishes are. If that's the case, there may be more trouble than just how to take care of the body- because there will probably be a lack of legal documentation (such as a will... uh oh) as well. My father is currently looking into total body donation (donating it to science, that is), and it is our job to support him in whatever endeavor he should so choose. I feel a Hub coming on about this, actually. Thanks for the inspiration, and allowing us to weigh in!!

    My fiance was killed in a freak roll over accident in our driveway 3 years ago, he had made his cremation wishes clear throughout the years to myself and several close friends but apparently never to his mother.  Thankfully she listened to us all and understood that he wanted to be cremated in the event of his passing.  Her and I both received heart shaped granite containers with a portion of his cremains and the remaining cremains were placed in an urn that we both decided upon and were then buried next to his father in a local cemetary.  I look at it as if we have the best of both scenarios...a part of him will always be with us and we can all go to his burial site to visit and pay respects.
