The father of one of my closest friends died a very few years ago. Her
mother is still hanging in there. He and his wife had been married for a
long time and had raised seven children. I have lost count of the
grandchildren and great grandchildren, but my friend, the oldest child, has
five children herself.

The father was cremated and his ashes placed in a very large urn. The
mother's plans are to be cremated when her time comes. Then the ashes will
be mixed in the one urn and that urn placed into a vault that the mother has
already bought.

Half the family thinks this is gross. The other half is where I am, that it
sounds quite romantic. I'd never heard of this before.
