Another point of anecdata: FIL died last year, and the cremation and service cost $2000ish. There might have been some additional costs because of a time lapse due to tissue donation, not sure, though I do know the body had to be transported to Our City from Hometown for the cremation to take place.True DIY: family members that wanted one (or a set) all got a drumstick T hollowed out and placed some ashes in. Our children each have a set as does T, his sister, his mother, uncles/aunts, nieces/nephews and a grandniece. FIL had some collectible sticks (including a Vegas set he bought at our wedding, which is the set T used for himself) people chose from, his mother has the practice sticks he used all the time, etc.Also of note, we were told the best place to get a necklace or piece of jewelry to place ashes in was a head shop; as the ones designated as memorial pieces were far more expensive. Visiting such shops provided more than a few moments of levity that week...impolite
