here I was hoping we could finally get rid of you, and you're telling me you'll never be truly gone? damn it...
Will you be buried?

One reason burial has been preferred by Christians is because the Bible teaches that one day those who die in Christ will be raised from the dead and given new bodies. But God is able to bring together whatever has been scattered: "And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens" (Mark 13:27).
It would suck to be an angel tracking down anyone during the Resurrection that chose to get cremated if Billy G. is correct.
Trying to find every little bit of dust, especially for those of you planning to get scattered in multiple locations? Forgetaboutit! Better hope your angel isn't into short cuts or the lowest bidder: "Well we found about 96% of the guy, that's good enough for government work!" "Smoke 'em if you got 'em boys!"

I want to go out Scotty style....Ashes in space. But as someone said earlier, coffin in space could be even better.
Did have a family friend pass away a few years ago.....his wishes....cremated and the ashes made into fish bait and the children were to go use him during a fishing trip in the gulf. And yes, they followed through with it. Didn't get the tally of what was actually caught on that trip. May have to question the next Redfish before I eat it and ask if he ate 'Sam'.
