Get Mummified When You Die!
Get Mummified When You Die!

If your death wishes don’t include a traditional burial or cremation, you could always get mummified. Believe it or not, a company in Utah has spent the last 30 years bringing the ancient, Egyptian tradition into modern times. The company is called Summum and is the world’s only mummification company. They say they mummify pets and people, and it takes 90 days to mummify a person. The process involves taking the organs out, cleansing the body, and then hydrating the body in a tank of chemicals for more than 70 days. Then the body is covered with lanolin and wax and of course layers and layers of cotton gauze before being topped off with a fiberglass finish. The process is not cheap though, so start saving now. Personally, I think I’ll stick with burial or creamation! How about you?
