Where is Your Last Fixed Address?  FThe Burial Options Society in Strathcona will discuss what is practical, possible and prohibited when it comes to final body disposition. Not as dry as it sounds, BOSS will educate and entertain (we call it edutainment)  with the legalities and the stories as to why "just cremate me and scatter me in the mountains" is not really a solid plan.
