Claiming my right as promulgator of this thread I am performing something of an exhumation!!!
Its the anniversary of the death of my dear friend who inspired me to ask the question in the first place - funny, I read the comments which in the majority seemed to opt for donation then cremation - I was backing all of them until today, when, feeling very brave, I visited my friend's grave.
I wasn't looking forward to it but felt it was something I had to do and, if I'm honest, found that sitting on the grass by her side was comforting in a way I had not expected.
Running my fingers over the moss and through the grass I disturbed a wee wiggly earth-dwelling creature and thought... Food for worms Lass thats what we are - Food for worms - its into a cotton bag and under a tree for me!!
