   Ok I know that this maybe kind of sick, but a lesson well learned for me and a friend. his Dad had passed away and wanted his ashes put spreed in cook inlet, as Alaska was his home and way of life. My friend asked if I would do this for him in my plane at the time with him pouring out his ashes do to his request and his family watching as we past by flying low at one of the look out spots along the road I pulled the window open and let him pour his Dad's ashes out, but in doing so the wind presser blew a lot of the ashes back inside the plane filling the small fuselage with ashes. Upon landing we both took a vacuum cleaner and sucked all that we could out and put it all back in a bag (not letting the family know what happen) and flow back out and into the inlet and dropped the rest of the remains out
 
  I know that this may not be funny at all, but we did not know this would happen, but my friend had said his Dad always liked flying so maybe this was just apart of him in the long run and was meant to be for him as he to was a pilot.

Hey you, cowboy,

I will bet your friend's Dad was high up above you laughing and jumping on clouds to see you two had not taken the wind factor into effect. I bet if you listen closely on a quiet night, you can hear his laughter on the wind.

You better stick to the 4 legged animals to ride and leave the flying to the blue angels and the magic carpet pilots.

Hugs

Kitt

Hi Cowboy :)

I find this amusing also. I would be laughing if loved ones did something like that to my ashes :) I am a humor person though :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace and Comfort!!!

as someone who used to work in a morgue, those ashes are barely human. you get most of the ash from the hardwood coffin being burnt. the actual body kind of 'evaporates' in the heat- sometimes you get a tooth here or there or bone fragment, but because of the body's high water percentage, it doesnt turn to ash in the typical sense. so you didnt really inhale too much of your friends dad. im sure there are exceptions to this, but in most cases- body evaporates. hope THAT wasnt too morbid for ya!
