    Oh bury me now on the lone prarie, where the wild cay-yotes will howl on me...


    I'll be buried, just not there on the prarie...:smilewinkgrin":

    I'm hoping to be changed, in the twinkling of an eye, when the Lord returns and we meet Him in the air.

    You wont like what you'll have to endure, to get there, but:
    Dan 12:12:
    "Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days."

    If she is still living, then my wife will decide what to do with my body. She can do any of the above and there's not a darn thing that I can do about it.

    I'll be in heaven, I won't need a body, so who cares? I'm sure my wife will have me buried after having my body prepared at a funeral home, but it won't make any difference to me whatsoever.

    Creamated and put in an hourglass. On Sunday mornings madre can give me a turn and let me run for an hour - just like old times.

    I have instructions written to harvest any useful organs, and then donate what is left to science for medical students to use for practice. More than likely, though, no one will find my body until long after I die since I live alone and seldom see anyone other than the UPS guy delivering what I order online.

    No embalming is needed in NY and that saves quite a bit of money. I'd be happy to be buried in a plain pine box covered in a horse blanket. My family will probably want a service and that's fine. :)

    Donating my body to a medical school. They can have it. I will not longer need it.

    I want to be stuffed, mounted on my bicycle and displayed in the front yard of my childhood home.

    Yes, I'm just kidding. :D

    As of right now, I'm thinking traditional funeral, but may go the way of cremation. Hopefully I'll have plenty of time to consider it.

    :)

    A Texan was asked the question and he replied, "Bury me in my four wheel drive pickup truck - - there ain't no hole it hasn't got me outta."

    Well...my wife intends to cremate me. See, after my previous job for 25 years, I now have somewhere around $100K worth of titanium in various parts of my body, and she wants a necklace and earrings....
