With life comes death, so let’s make it interesting.

I was watching an HBO Doctumenarty called, Alternate Endings: Six New Ways to Die in America, and it told the story of how Americans are choosing to both find meaning and celebrate life as it comes to an end in new ways. These are some very eye-opening non-traditional ways of laying to rest and they are all very touching.

And though it may seem a little morbid to you, I found it quite interesting and wanted to share with you all these six new ways from the show.

1.End of Life Celebration

2.Sending Ashes to Space

3.Underwater Coral Reef with Ashes

4.End of Life Assistance

5.Green Burial

6.Living Wake

By the way, I 100% recommend checking out the film. However, you better have some tissues at hand because this one is a real tear-jerker.
