After a celebration of Hutlet's life in Ontario, Dawson packed up the urn containing his mom's ashes and paid Canada Post to ship the package to Ladysmith, B.C., where she wanted to be buried in a family plot.

It's a six hour flight. "Just mail the biatch" is how you treat a mother-in-law, not your own.

We kept Grandma's cardboard box around for a while and brought to weddings before finally pouring her into Grandad's grave in the little podunk town she fled and never went back to after he died.  Not once did we mail her.

So you left her forever in the place she escaped from. Nice.

Well, she's just double cremated. Scoop up some of the ashes from the van fire and call it a day.

Then lightening struck the crash scene. That woman did something.

My Mom's ashes sat on her dresser for 5 months because my wonderful siblings couldn't agree on a single day to make the 5-hour drive to the cemetery, bury her ashes, and drive home. I finally did it myself, because the estate auction was coming up and something had to be done. I was the one who made sure she had a headstone.

13 years later, my father died. My brother paid $2500 for the cremation. If he had spoken to me first, it would have been $1000.

My siblings were just 3 hours away, but I buried my father's ashes with help from my cousin. My siblings didn't appear. I made sure he had a headstone.

I'd be a little hesitant to judge other people's reasonable arrangements for handling things like this. There's lots of perfectly legitimate reasons why they might not be able to travel.

However, I would add that if you're sending particularly valuable, irreplaceable things through the mail such as cremated ashes, bearer bonds or a $15k Pokemon card, you might want to go with a fireproof container of some sort.  It'll make the box bigger and heavier of course, but probably worth it. Mail vehicles tend to be overworked, old and full of flammable stuff, so a fire is possible and probably spectacular in nature.

In Boy Scouts there was a tradition where the leader, usually followed by several others, would pour ashes from a small vial into the campfire - these ashes being the remains of their previous campfire. The following day, once cooled, anyone who wished would collect a small vial's worth of ashes to be spread at their next campfire, and in this way share past campfires at future campfires.  I always thought this was such an incredible concept.

// Never could remember a vial
/// Don't think the same idea is as cool with human cremains

In this case, demand that the Post send some of the dirt from the landfill where the fire's remains were buried.

So you left her forever in the place she escaped from. Nice.


My uncle even said "Why would anyone want to go back there?"

But she's with the man she was married to for 19 years and mourned for 37.  I'm given to understand they were deliriously happy together, even in the hick backwater.

It's not like she's capable of caring.
