Man’s Ashes, Harley Urn Stolen, Carl Jackson, cremains

A Pend Oreille County woman is trying to find out who stole her late husband's ashes, which were kept in an urn made out of a Harley Davidson gas tank. Debbie Plunkett says it was the perfect place to put the ashes of her late husband, Carl Jackson, who died of cancer in 2001.Plunkett said it only made sense to put his ashes in the gas tank from his custom built bike. “He won tons of trophies with it. That was his pride and joy. Every Sunday he was washing it, washing and polishing it,” she said/Kalae Chock, KXLY. More here.

Question: What kind of container would you want your ashes placed in, to reflect your passion in life?
