Some traditions are ancient and have been practiced for centuries, while some are brand new developments thanks to scientific advancements. From having your ashes shot out into space, to having your remains stored into a diamond, it’s all pretty out of this world.
When we think of a funeral, we traditionally consider a old-fashioned burial, some type of entombment or possibly a cremation. What if we told you however, that you could have your ashes packed into fireworks and exploded across the sky for your whole family to see.
