My dad died last month, his wishes were to be cremated and he did not want a burial of the ashes. He loved the outdoors and always fished, he loved camping and lakes and all that outdoorsy stuff. My husband and I have rented a cottage coming up in a couple of weeks which we have stayed at for the last 3 years(I searched the internet out to find this one)Apparently about 20 years ago my dad happened upon this same small cottage resort and my whole family all stayed there and I didn,t even make the conection because it was so long ago and until we compared pictures. I told my mom I would like to spread the ashes up there, she agreed. Now I am really having second thoughts, I guess fear. We have not picked up the ashes yet, and I don,t really want to even touch the ashes themselves. I was looking to try and get one of the urns which dissolve, or maybe get a piece of pottery (unfinished which is very fragile)and then w could do a lake scatter and drop the biodegradable urn and no one would have to touch the cremains.Anyone have any ideas, I am really at a loss of any other ideas. Or any other ideas for something that could be used for the lake scatter. The degradable urns I looked at seem very expensive 2-300 dollars and at this poingt in time that would be a real stretch on our budget and my brother and sister who have been no help through the whole thing would not contribute.Thanks Sandra

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
