What Not to Do
  • Do Not Keep Ashes
    • If cremation is chosen, the ashes are not to be kept at home on the bed-stand, nor placed on the living room hearth.
  • Do Not Sprinkle Ashes
    • If cremation is chosen, the ashes are not to be sprinkled nor spread throughout the backyard, or in the water of a nearby canal, nor in the ocean.

Out of dignity for the body, the cremains are always placed in an urn, which is then put in a formal place of permanent repose, often a columbarium. It surely serves as a permanent place of remembrance, for reverent acknowledgment and visitation.
