Our BIL passed recently, and SIL is bringing his ashes back to her hometown where they plan to be buried together.
Anyway, this got us discussing our cremation plans, and a friend told us about a Viking Funeral he attended (ashes, no body). I see this has been discussed before
, but I had no idea that you could actually buy a little boat for your ashes. We planned to have our ashes scattered at a lake we frequent, and I think our kids would find this not only very therapeutic, but actually have some fun doing it.

Death was such an uncomfortable subject for both sets of parents, and I want to pave the way for our kids so they know we weren't afraid. Don't want to get too spiritual here, so I'll stop.
