Rest in Peace

I was going through my mail the other night, and came across a brochure with my name on a pre-printed label adhered to it.

The cover depicted a beautiful garden with the title, "Become a Part of History."

Curious, I opened the brochure and began to read. I figured it was a solicitation for a donation to a nonprofit organization.

The inside of the brochure contained more photos of trees, flowers, shrubs. I continued reading. The large title in the center of the brochure read:

Come Here for a Visit; Stay Here for an Eternity

"Hmm.." I wondered. "Is this a hospital? A rehab center? A retirement community?"

I read on.

Our location offers a wide selection of choices to memorialize your loved ones.

Cremation - Our chapel is a full-service state-of-the-art facility. We offer a variety of contemporary and traditional niche styles. An urn garden and lawn niches are available for those who prefer ground burial for cremated bodies.

Entombment - Families who prefer above-ground burial may select a crypt from one of our elegant community mausoleums. Single, double, companion, couch or family style crypts are available.

Despite the obvious question of how I managed to get on this place's mailing list, I have to say, it all looks rather appealing.

Perhaps I should buy the Fiance a plot as a wedding present. We can get a couch-style crypt together.

It can't hurt to plan ahead, can it?
