I do agree with her on the embalming, makeup applying ridiculousness of a burial, but unlike her, I don't want my body left out for animals to devour. I have a hard enough time when I catch my dog Shelton rooting around in the litter box for a "tootsie roll."

If you're into learning about death and want a book that's a conversation starter, check out her book!
Speaking of death, I am attending a funeral this Saturday. I didn't know the deceased very well, but what I did know of her, I seriously respected. I've attended several funerals since I hit my forties. The idea of a funeral service used to fill me with anticipatory grief and anxiety, but now I look at them as opportunities to celebrate someone's life and to perhaps provide some measure of comfort to those still living.
Thanks for stopping by and if you feel so inclined, vote in my burial vs. cremation poll at the bottom of my front page.
