For me, its a closed casket. I hate open casket funerals- too sad, and slightly eerie. There are a number of ways to have a funeral these days- I wonder if any of you have given thought to the inevitible? (One such method is having your cremated remains poured into fireworks, then sent into the sky for one last show. Seriously.) Here's some cool options- http://www.finalarrangementsnetwork....scattering.htm Since I'm only 19, its kinda early to think about this...but you never really know. What about you?
