Personalised farewell: a family can share in decorating a loved one's coffin with pictures, paint, and designs: it becomes a time to share memories, laughter, and tears. So say the authors of this book.  It includes woodland burials, memorials, eulogies, ashes; it also covers budgets, transport, and paperwork in dealing with the nitty-gritty of this difficult subject.
