I hope I have something I'm passionate enough about when it's my time, that can be a part of my departure service.....not sure what it would be right now, hopefully I'm not all that close to it being my time!

I had a friend on mine pass away a couple of weeks ago.
In the death certificate there is a box as to where you die, building, place, zip, etc.
He passed away on his boat anchored out in the bay.

They listed a Lat/Lon.

I thought that was pretty cool, he would have enjoyed that.

Glad I was not a pallbearer and had to lift that casket from the boat. Those things are heavy.

You'd need a lot of ashes to make an artificial reef.
