Ooops.

Guess I'd better be buying a ninja suit and a shovel with a non-reflective handle. Hee hee.

Hey, I just took a quiz on Facebook..."Which badass are you?" And I got Chuck Norris. So between your ninja stealth mode and my Chuck Norris, we're totally above Alabama law. ;)

As you said in your last post, YOU paid for all that. He's YOUR husband. He should be with you. Having buried both my parents within 14 months of each other, I know that no matter what burial route you take, it's all very expensive. If his family wants him there in that gaudy box, they should have chipped in on expenses.

I'm so sorry for your loss and you have every right to bury him however you want. Do what you have to do.
