Honour your deceased loved ones

There are some interesting ways to treasure your dearly departed nowadays. You can have their ashes turned into a diamond to wear in an item of jewellery. You can have the ashes moulded into an acrylic paperweight (see here, actually looks quite nice!).

If you were a roving man-about-The-Andes in ancient times, these options weren’t available to you, so…what to do? It turns out you could stop in at a ‘render while you wait’ mortuary where your loved one’s bones would be de-fleshed in quicklime so you could resume your travels with Dad and Mum, or your spouse, tucked neatly into your kitbag in tidy bundles of bone! Don’t believe me? See here…

The chances are, someone has already thought of your idea, however crazy it may seem.
