My dad died last thursday. We're cremating his body but the final disposition of his remains is a problem for my family. Basically, we're too poor to do anything but flush him down the toilet. Help? [more inside]

A dear relative will likely die within the next decade, and I am trying to help her plan a natural burial in L.A., but am flummoxed by California's regulations and am unsure whether it is a viable option. [more inside]

FictionFilter! I can't believe I'm asking this, but.. here goes: What could you put in an urn that would be mistaken for the ashes of a loved one? Oh god, that looks even worse now that I've actually typed it! Luckily, it's only for a story I'm writing. [more inside]

I'm young, not religious, and I am convinced that when I'm dead, I'm dead. I don't care what happens to my remains when I eventually die, but I'm wondering: what's the cheapest, legal
way to dispose of my body?
I live in Chicago, and from my research, even to donate my body to science or to have it cremated would cost over a grand.
Any other options? I just don't want to be a burden to my survivors.
