Ca$hing it all in

In these cash-strapped times, some Washington residents are cashing in on their future residence: their burial plots. Depending on one's future "neighborhood," owners can sell their sites for thousands of dollars.

However, like all real estate situations, well-heeled buyers are few and more people than ever are planning on cheaper final farewell ceremonies - such as cremation.



Spokesman-Review features writer Rebecca Nappi, along with writer Catherine Johnston of Olympia, Wash., discuss here issues facing aging boomers, seniors and those experiencing serious illness, dying, death and other forms of loss.
