All the lonely people. Where do they all come from? Where do they all belong?Pretty sobering to think about.
The reason for this is simple::: MONEY
I agree, Snowman.Even a simple cremation can run over $1000. (My
relative's was about $1500...with no services or burial...out of state. We

person who died even cares. But it is still sad.I admire the mortuary
owners who will keep the remains. just in case.
please at least scatter your antecedents remains someplace where the sun shines

to be aware that we might help some family along the way, even though we do not
have any idea how, when or where.Don't cemetaries have plots
