serendipity1499 Posted September 25, 2013 #1 Share Posted September 25, 2013 After attending my Dear Sister-in-law's 2 day funeral in N.Y. last week, I emphasized to my family that I do not want any one to visit me.. It would be OK to have a memorial service later.. But when I leave this world, I want to be immediately cremated & would like my family to eventually take a nice long cruise on HAL & bury me at sea.. It was so terribly sad for my DH & me to see his Brother, who is not doing well physically & mentally at all.. The one thing which comforts us, is that my Brother-in-law has six wonderful kids all married & 12 Grandchildren/great grandchildren who are very attentive & will keep him company & will try to keep him healthy in his home..Two of the girls are Nurses & most of the kids were there when their Mother passed away.. Have already pulled up & printed Indycal's thread when she buried her Mom at Sea on the Oosterdam & also the TSA rules of traveling (by Air) with crematory remains for our family, just in case they have to fly.. Just in doing some research it gives me comfort that the HAL crew will be good to my family & help them send me out to sea.. Have also been looking for biodegradable urns & think it might be wise to order one, so they would not have to experience what my Sister-in-Law's kids had to go through with picking out the casket, flowers, & having a full day/evening viewing in a funeral parlor before the church service..
