What is the Catholic Church's position on cremation?

My father was in the Air Force, and I have lived all over the world. After getting drafted in the Army, I was sent to Atlanta Ga. After being Honorably Discharged, I got a job, I met my wife and lived there for 30 years. My company (Lockheed Martin) transferred me to West Virginia to do work on a contract with the FBI. I have been here 7 years. My point in all this is that I come from everywhere and really belong nowhere. So: what is the Church’s position on getting cremated after death?

The following links should explain the Church’s teaching on cremation. If you have any further questions, please contact Catholic Answers directly.
