I had already opted for the infinity suit and green burial, but resomation resonates. For the first time in my life I’m tempted to add an emoji, but in this case it feels creepy.

Family should be involved for the entire process of course, but, other than my wife, mine would most likely be bewildered and alienated by the process.

That being said, I agree with David Baron. It’s unfortunate that city health and zoning regulations would likely interfere with burial on the property (I would still prefer green) because involving family (including the children) in the preparation and burial would allow us to embrace death, an awareness consumer societies try to hide from us.
