I notice a lot of posters opting for cremation for themselves when the time comes. I had never thought about it, until I had an MRI. People at my MD's office asked if I needed sedation for the test prior to sending me, had ever been claustrophobic. No, I assured them. Day of test at hospital, "would you like to be sedated so you don't flip out in there"? Nope, I'm good. Table moved to put me in tube, I caught a head rush, closed eyes to get control of that. Opened eyes inside the tube, wow, ok, really tight in there. Had to run 2 series on without dye one with, it took forever, I came home and told everyone I NEVER want to be in something that tight again, ...so do not burry me. Everyone was fine with it. But then my Father started bringing it up and telling me that the Lord will rise people "out of the grave", and if I don't have one, what will happen? I asked about sailers who are lost at sea, no classic "grave" there either, he said those lost to the seas are covered in the verses. (?) Thoughts? I don't see the point in a casket, stone, etc. and I still don't want to be in a box! :-) Everyone close to me is older, so not like kids and grandkids would want to visit a grave, but I don't want Dad upset.
