Why can’t a person dig a hole in his yard and bury a family member there without a casket? certainly the local government would have to verify that the death was not the result of any wrong doing. At a slight fee, of course. Or, better yet, why can’t bodies be disposed of with our other trash. Remember man, that thou art dust, and into dust thou shalt return. Funerals are nothing morre than huge money makers for funeral homes, florists, cemeteries and restaurants/caterers.
