Bury me in a pine box, 6 feet under.
I don't care what happens to my body when I'm dead. I am pretty serious about donating my body to science. That's what we are doing with my dad after his brain autopsy (for Alzheimers research). After the science folks are done with him, he will get cremated and his ashes buried with full honors in Arlington for his service to these most wonderful United States of America.
