I think one box in my lifetime will last me a while.  ;D
One reason why I will not be buried in a casket. I don't need someone to slip in a box of grits to last me in the after life.  ;D

So yer thinking ashes? Ashes that could be sprinkled over seed corn to help it grow then when harvested, stone ground into grits?

WDH,good one.  ;D 
Making grits in Maine is illegal. I think it's one of those old blue laws. Than you get them people from away,and they want to change everything to make Maine better. 
There will be no making of corn with my ashes.

   I have an old HS buddy down in NW Fla who works for the county and I told him if he dies before I do I am going to have him cremated and miss his ashes in a big batch of wet cement and go around the county filling potholes. Then I am going to tell everyone "I know one county employee who is doing something useful for the people in the county."

    I would think it would be a high honor to be buried in a casket full of grits. Kind of like southern Ambrosia to the old Greek gods.

Reincarnation, by Wallace McRae

What is reincarnation? A cowboy asked his friend.

It starts, his old pal told him, when your life comes to an end.

They wash your neck and comb your hair and clean your fingernails,

And put you in a padded box away from lifeís travails.

The box and you goes in a hole thatís been dug in the ground.

Reincarnation starts in when youíre planted neath that mound.

Them clods melt down, just like the box, and you who is inside.

And thatís when you begin your transformation ride.

And in a while the grass will grow upon your rendered mound,

Until some day, upon that spot, a lonely flower is found.

And then a horse may wander by and graze upon that flower

That once was you, and now has become your vegetated bower.

Now, the flower that the horse done eat, along with his other feed,

Makes bone and fat and muscle essential to the steed.

But thereís a part that he canít use and so it passes through.

And there it lies upon the ground, this thing that once was you.

And if perchance, I should pass by and see this on the ground,

Iíll stop awhile and ponder at this object that Iíve found.

Iíll think about Reincarnation and life and death and such,

And come away concludiní, why, you ainít changed all that much.
