Meatsim1: Its not even a mandated part of Christianity to be preserved and buried.
SecretAgentWoman: StrikitRich: A major reason is cost. A basic cremation costs an average of about $2,250, according to the Cremation Association. That's compared with about $8,350 for the average burial.Cremation is also a practical option for Florida's seasonal and transplant residents, as cremated remains are cheaper and easier to transport, Mullins said.There's your answer right there: Cremation is cheaper and you can then send Grandpa or Grandma back up north to be interred via USPS Flat Rate Shipping.I've discovered an even cheaper way.
