Donate any useable organs and cremate. Makes more sense and is much less expensive. When Russ died, all that they could use were his eyes. I had him cremated (his wish) and the cremains buried, in a National Cemetery. He told me NOT to go into debt, to bury him. The cememtery, that his son preferred, wanted $1500.00, for a spot just big enough, for a small box. I told Jr. that, if he wanted his dad there, HE'D have to pay for it. As a disabled veteran, Russ got free burial, in a National Cemetery.
