Hi,

I checked with my folks to see with whom they have a contract. It's the National Cremation Society, (800) 627-7456. They prepaid and have instructed us to contact the NCS rather than a local funeral home to avoid extra costs. They presumably will respond anywhere in the country. My parents live in FL near the Gulf and want to have one of those sunset armada scenes where a number of friends on their boats spread the ashes on the water.

My kids informed me that they have selected a mountain in NY where I'll be scattered. My sole stipulation was that it be in a grove of pines. It's so much easier to deal with these questions in advance.

Good luck.
