    While the rest of you will probably be clutching your phone, I'll be clutching the neck of a cat skeleton.  (poop on me when I'm sleeping, will you!!!!!)

    There will be nothing to dig up as I will be fertilizer for a tree upon my death.

      Just for grins and giggles (just to play along with the bit), what might be in your hand if you were to be found in any other condition besides cremation?

    That's cool. I've heard of it, but hadn't looked it up. I'm going to write that down.

    Oh, I was talking about the tree/ashes thing! I've heard of clutching my pearls! Very deserved best answer! 

    You should see all the AARP ads in my mailbox. I'm not a whippersnapper! :)

    Ah, I see.  One of my nieces told me about the tree/ashes solution.  Personally, I think cemeteries are a waste of land that could be better used for the living.

    I agree with you! I'm not 100% set on anything post-cremation, but I really like that idea you shared!

    If nothing else, it's an environmentally sound solution.

    I very small flat polished stone that my daughter gave me.  You would never guess where I keep it to be sure it never gets lost.

    I keep a little crystal glass in my bathroom which I put my toothbrushes in.  I also keep that little stone in that.
