Good to see there are smart people concerning economic ways to let the body go without making funer homes richer. Im a Christian. I know the Lord is going to take my soul after Im cremated. The funeral homes should worry about where their souls will go after hundreds of years preying on YOUR wallets!!! Dont try to justify your thievery which only insults people even more. And for the ones that think the crock of stew is the Christian way to go, how do you figure that? When we are resurrected, our new body will be youthful & new again…so why burden the family or help the funeral directer get richer.???
