Scattered Ashes

Jason English

Yesterday, Tim Nudd of Adfreak mentioned Major League Baseball-branded urns (via Make The Logo Bigger). A little Googling turned up a Stanley Cup urn, teddy bear urns (for pets) and a bronze bust urn. I don't have anything else to say about urns. But I would like to discuss the contents within.

Spreading a lost loved one's ashes across an exotic or poignant locale is something I've only ever seen in movies. I assume this really happens "“ either the inspiration for all the big screen ash-spreading, or in response to it. Anyone have a (true) story about scattering a person's ashes somewhere special?
