What I find odd is that JW does not believe in cremation, yet his family had him cremated.

.

Very sad about P's Son. I read the story and it's just heartbreaking. I was a bit shocked to read that P was not there when his Son passed. I can't imagine what that did to Mayte. I can't imagine the pain of losing a child but, maybe he could not bear to see him one last time and he wanted to let him go in peace. cry

- Yes that appears to be the case. I remember when his dad his crazy sister Lorna was talking to C.J. and said he wanted to cremate his dad but sibs were against it.

Another Wow! but sibs was against it, good for them. So his Dad is buried in Minneapolis somewhere? I personally don't like it, even if the soul has left the body. I don't like anything resemblance of Hell, the Temperatures on that _____ to reduce your bones to dust. Yikes!! eek

Yes, I believe he is buried with his first wife. Some people just do not like the idea of having an casket with people looking in on them. With cremation you by pass that part of the funeral process.

Tyka did say he did not like drama.

Desecration of a final resting place is always a concern with a famous person. I thought spreading his ashes over the Chanhassen/Minneapolis region would have been appropriate, but either he specifically stated what he wanted done when the time was to come, or his family made a judgment call on the procedure and display at PP. I do think being at PP is where he should be, but I would prefer - for security reasons - that the urn be behind glass in a wall.

Mayte said they had their own private ceremony so he had time to say goodbye.

Maybe Prince realized that it doesn't matter whether you are cremated or buried because you are dead. Personally I would prefer cremation over burial because I hate the thought of my body deterioting and being eaten by worms.

Cremation vs burial is a very private and personal decision. Regardless of what anyone on this site or anywhere else thinks, it's none of our business.

All i know is the cremation was a rush job for reasons we will never know.

That is not true.

JWs view burial vs cremation as a private and personal matter.

So people that went on the VIP tours to PP these past weeks got to see the PP urn?

I think they rushed it because they wanted to avoid someone taking a photograph of him at the funeral home. A picture was taken of John Lennon at the morgue, and of Whitney Houston at the funeral home, so there is a market for such things.

Yes, the PP urn is in the atrium in a glass case.

Hmmm, I don't think it had anything to do with the possibility of "pictures" being taken.

.

There were no pictures taken (that we know of) outside PP when Prince's body was being removed by the Coroner.

Are his ashes even really in it is the question.

Even if you're buried, over time you will wind up as dust anyway.

THANK YOU! Empress, I'm glad you said this, because I was about it. I can't imagine someone going up to Tyka and actually asking that question. How fucking selfish and heartless! I'd slap a MFer if someone came up to me and challenged me as to why my mother was cremated instead of buried. (PS She died on April 21, 2012.)

On a non-emotional level, I sometimes believe that celebrities are cremated because it's a security concern. All too often graves have been desecrated and bodies are stolen. Why, I have no idea, other than obsessive fanaticism, that someone would want to steal a dead body. It's creepy A.F.

And the statement the OP said about "burned his son" is a bit harsh. It's the remains. The son is gone at that point, obviously. No soul, no spirit, no life. The life has transitioned, the body starts to decay right away. It's creepy to hang onto something so temporary.

It's really no one's concern if they equate cremation to hell (which is so ridiculous - do you not go around a camp fire or a BBQ grill or a fireplace????), or if a fan likes it or not. Prince was not your brother or son or father or husband or cousin. It's simply no one's business.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Why I just told you he had his son cremated so obvisouly this was something he had no issue with.

Maybe certain members of the family prefer cremation because Duane was cremated also.

Next time you are at a camp fire or fireplace, walk up in it and tell me how that feels? mad

Cremation is a personal decision, whether it has to do with your religious/spiritual beliefs or what have you. How one wishes to "rest in peace" when they leave this earth, either in the ground or as ashes is something that is to be discused with the family, obviously.

.

I think before people start judging others, they need to educate themselves on "death" and the "afterlife", because different religions believe different things.

.

You have to understand that when we leave this earth, our bodies are just a "shell", or a "vessel" if you will. Our soul and spirit leaves our body. Some of you talk as though you can FEEL after death. No, you cannot. You are not in the "physical" world anymore.

A dead person doesn't feel any pain.


Are your responses just a cry for attention? Or are you genuinely err..naive..shall we say.
