Finally got Dad's arrangements completed.

Interred at the Veterans Cemetery at 1pm this Friday. Memorial service on site, no other service was wanted by him.

Thank You MB.

Word of warning for anyone contemplating cremation. When they say the remains will come in a box, that is what they mean! A CARDBOARD BOX!!! We picked up Dad's ashes at the Funeral home late yesterday afternoon. I asked Kacey to look inside the covering (I thought) outside box. She said that they came in a wooden or suitable plastic box. NOT ANY MORE, at least around here. Now we have to see if the Veterans Cemetery provides something or if Dad will be buried in a white cardboard box.

Sadly, another part of the funeral business is SELLING containers for ashes, whether they are ceramic, metal, etc.

The Veterans Honor Guard should perform their service regardless of the container; that's what we do around here.

That sound like an unfortunate shock Randy and I'm sorry to hear it. I know we had to pick a suitable box for my grandfather's ashes when the time came and my father has decided to make his own...

My personal feelings are that at the end of the day the container matters very little. The memories of the people that have gathered to remember the departed are the truly telling thing. Years from now people will be talking of those memories and not of a box.

I do hope you and your family are doing as well as can be expected.

Chris

Thank you Chris and Tom.

We did OK with the black plastic box although it would have been nice if it was a nice wood. The normal cardboard box was just a shock, when they said the remains would be returned to us in a box that could be used for internment, we just expected something a little more. We both figured it would be made of wood or plastic.
