I have no desire to see my family waste money on a casket like this and think that funeral homes that push these extravagant caskets are just leeches sucking on the blood of people who are vulnerable at a time of great loss.

Cremate me and do what you want with the ashes*. Just don't dig a hole and throw $6k in the ground.

*and by do what you want I mean put my ashes in McDonald's pepper shakers and distribute me across the country
