I don't want to be cremated. I want to be buried. I've buried all of my pets, have not cremated one of them.

I do like the idea of those tree pod things you can get nowadays - you get cremated and have your ashes included in a special pod to help grow a tree. I have visions of entire forests of families and friends - how nice would that be?

All the parts that can be donated are being donated. Anything that's left over can be disposed of by the hospital or used for research or whatever they want. I want no services or ceremonies. Once I'm done with my body, I don't care what happens to it, but I like the idea of helping others after I'm gone.

"Green" burial would be okay, but I don't currently have anyone close enough to me who would welcome the hassle involved in doing not-the-usual thing.

Cremation can be arranged in advance.
