It's good to see the man's last wishes carried out. To many times someone steps in. Sarah and I have an agreement. I want cremated and a big party thrown.

A lot of the charter boats down on the Gulf Coast have started offering "funeral at sea" charters where they'll hold your funeral out on the water and scatter your ashes in the ocean at the end.

My granddad was an avid charter boat man. His ashes where spread on the inlet on an out going tide. That was back in the 50's.
