C: Mom, do have ashes for people too? Like with the dog. [Our dog passed away over the summer and when he asked what they were doing with her body, I explained what cremation is.]
M: Well, yes. Some people choose to be cremated rather than buried.
C: When I grow up, I would like to have your ashes. I would keep them somewhere very special.
M: ...........Er, thanks?
I guess it is sort of sweet.
