O.K., folks, here's one for the books!

  1. A person posted this web-site link on a music/recording bulletin board I frequently visit.

    I visited this link and I couldn't believe my eyes!

    I've never heard of such a thing! Talk about memorializing your dead loved ones! Personally, I think it's kind of creepy. What do you think??

    Check it out!

    I guess the "life force" of a dead loved one can "twinkle" on forever. . . one way or another! Yikes!

    Ted, I heard something about this just this morning on the "Today Show"..

    Right now I think it's kinda a neat idea

    It's definately a unique idea! But still kind of creepy.

    How's this for conversation:

    "Oh, I see you like my diamond ring. Do you like it? It's my mother. She's shining at you!"

    . . . this unique idea. . . . just seems kind of creepy.

    And possibly pretty at the same time!

    Geeze!

    Wow.. that's pretty wild stuff.... I kind of like the idea! I never want to be buried anyway... When my hubbie and I had our wills done... I included the fact that I want to be cremated! No burial, no wake.... Cremeated and a memorial.

    I saw something about it on Web news yesterday. A little too weird for me.

    Hi Ted

    I really like the idea of having LifeGems made out of my CARBON once I'm cremated. I'd have as many as possible made so my kids and grandkids could all have one.....and um....my hubby too....just in case he survives kicking the bucket before me.

    Okay.....I just had a morbid thought here.....what if my hubby is wearing "ME" while he's making whoopie with some other feline after my demise from Planet Earth. Perhaps I should ask the Gem Maker to put in a little something extra for him during those times so when he's...you know...in that way with her and all...my "Gem" will speak out and say "HEY....WATCH IT YOU TWO....I'm right here you know....and really don't want to witness you two groping at each other, so feline......LEAVE MY MAN ALONE!!! :chuckle :roll Cant' you just see that feline making a dustpath out of there?

    It reminds me of the man who invented the professional frisbee. He just died and is having his ashes made into several frisbees that will go to his family members and friends. To each his own, I say!!!

    It all depends on one's perspective, you know. Just think about it. Your hubby could have some kind of funky threesome going on. . . .

    Sorry. . . Couldn't resist! Cheers to you!

    Mmmmmm...threesome, huh? Well...on THAT note...guess I'd better have my entire body made into ONE BIG GEM for the man then. :chuckle :roll :chuckle

    Creepier than putting makeup and wigs on them so everyone can come look at a body? Not something I'd do, but still a long way from shocking me *lol*.

    He gets down on bended knee with the ring in his right hand as he proposes to "the next wife".......saying: "My dearest girlfriend, will you marry my wife.....I mean...me?"
