Decomposing on a Farm

I have read of the Forensic Anthropology Center in Tennessee. There bodies are placed outside and in cars and in sheds to allow to decompose under varying conditions. Gruesome as this sounds, it is for the training of forensic scientists who investigate deaths in our communities. the data and... Sign in to see full entry.

Save Land

Cemeteries take up land, while cremation does not, or at least take up much less land. For those who insist on burials rather than cremation, why not bore holes wide enough for a cylindrical casket a bit larger than the width of a body, then drop (or lower gently) the caskets vertically into the...

A Roving Funeral

For someone who enjoyed traveling, perhaps burying a person in his home town for a year or so would be a good start. Then, each year or two, dig the deceased's remains up and move them to another city to re-bury. This would appeal to the person who enjoyed travel when alive. Sign in to see full entry.

City Dump Funeral

If we move city dumps a bit further from the cities they serve, a cheap funeral could be just taking a deceased family member to the dump and dump him/her for the birds, bugs and worms to clean up. After all, the body is but a shell, devoid of the person we love. Sign in to see full entry.

Have an accomplice just behind the casket with a... Sign in to see full entry.

And Why Not Enjoy a Funeral?

I wrote about this in my new church blog and got to thinking, why not a brunch for a funeral, but with a specific twist. How about a funeral brunch at the funeral itself? The buffet table would be laden mostly with foods loved and enjoyed by the decedent. Perhaps the table could include items... Sign in to see full entry.

Honor the Dead

Funerals today are primarily to either placate the bereaved families or a time for the minister conducting the funeral to push his beliefs on funeral guests. How about a funeral totally designed to center about the deceased, to tell his or her life's story, to enumerate that person's contributions... Sign in to see full entry.

Denial

For those who are in denial about death, particularly their own, I have conjured up a "Denial Funeral." The Denial Funeral is pretty much like others, except whenever one of the guests passes the casket, he must murmur in an audible voice for all to hear, including the corpse if he is listening, "He...
