to all. That's what I do when I get this 'pre-need' offer in the mail, usually twice a year.

Nice, isn't it? It came in the mail, along with my chance to win a free cremation.
Just what I've always wanted for Christmas - a free cremation

So if you win the free cremation, I wonder if they offer a twofer. Or maybe if you decide not to use your winnings, can you give it to a neighbor? Since it will be a "winning", will you have to pay taxes on it the same as if you won the lottery? Or could you claim your prize but not use it? Then leave it as part of your estate and let the kids pay any due taxes if applicable.

Am I getting carried away? I do worry about these things at night when I can't get to sleep.

I won't be looking into it, Addie. The offer comes from an 'upscale' outfit, and no doubt has conditions and fine print. When I go, it'll be without frills, with a cardboard box for the 'dust to dust' dust.

Well since I won't be able to give any instructions or ask questions at that time, I will just rest in peace and let the family figure it out. For the first time in their lives, they won't have Mom to ask.

I'm with you kid!

I still need to lose some more weight so they don't hit me a fuel surcharge!
