I went to Joe's funeral Monday.

What I expected to be a funeral.

Joe had been cremated.

I asked a friend later in the day if that was true, there was no mention of a burial in the funeral announcement.

She told me the law required cremation.

I was looking at the information on the CDC site and there seems to be no requirment from them, so it must be a state law.


@software- Friend was also cremated and her sons had many meetings with her doctors and were present at video conferences where her doctors were speaking to others with CJD patients bc it's so rare and horrific. 


My first thought was that maybe the sons donated her brain so that further study could be done bc this disease was so horrific in which case my guess is that cremation would be the better option.
