Composting and pine boxes preferable
Your May 16 editorial titled “Composting humans is going too far” made me think of my grandmother. She used to tell us to bury her in a pine box, but give her flowers while she was alive. We wanted her to have the best, and so a typical funeral with the embalming fluid and casket spray of roses was chosen. I think she was right. Why do we fill our corpses with chemicals, place ourselves in boxes that won’t biodegrade and cover them with concrete bunkers? Idiocy.
