This morning, my mother has gone to the funeral home to make plans for herself and my father. (My father is currently terminally ill.) I'm upset to find out that my dad wishes to have his ashes scattered in the woods, as he is quite the nature lover. She said that it would also be possible to have his and her ashes together in a little vial on a necklace.I.
what she wants is probably illegal where you live. so is keeping ashes in a vial, urn or any other place except buried or reposed in a structure for that purpose. If you see a little stone house in a cemetary often that is used to inter containers of the ashes of the deceased can't remember the name of the structure.
If she and your father are Catholic they must follow church laws and have a proper funeral and proper interment of the remains. period. suggest she include your priest in her pre-planning.
