Death is something that scares me and I try not to think much about it, but when it comes down to it, everyone does. So, in a sense i have no put much thought into it, but thinking about it now, i believe i have some idea of what i want. I would not want to be buried six feet under or burnt to a crisp and have my ashes placed somewhere. I think that when i die, i want to places in a large house in a cemetery where i am placed above ground. There would be larger sign stating who i am and a little bit about myself, even have some family members around me. The notion of being buried alive makes me not want to be placed in the ground even though i might have passed on. Plus being burnt does not sound that great either. I know, i am dead, what does it matter to me, but its just still weird. I am comfortable in rotting in this cement house and wasting away in this area where my name is maintained on a sign that is place on the door when enter. This way in the end, people that want to come see me can visit me, and remember me.
