A Springfield, Oregon man is selling ad space on his cremation urn to cover some of his medical bills and also his funeral. Aaron Jamison has been diagnosed with colon cancer, and depending on how his treatment goes, has anywhere from 3 to 9 months to live. In an effort to not leave his family stuck with mounting medical bills and to also pay for his cremation, Aaron has come up with a unique advertising scheme. He is selling advertisement space on his urn to local businesses. In addition, Aaron has also setup a web site to accept donations from anyone who would like to contribute. [See link below]

On his site he also states that:

As a Christian I believe that there is a life after this one. In truth, lots of religions, and many people with no religious belief whatsoever, believe that there is “something” after all this. (I personally don’t adhere to reincarnation because… well… let’s just say I don’t want to go through puberty again.) My personal perspective believes in the biblical concept of Heaven. A reunion with God where the relationship humans were originally created to have with Him is restored completely and we will finally fill that need, that vacuum, that exists in every one of us.

My beliefs on what Heaven is like, and let’s just face the face that no matter who’s scriptural interpretation we use/abuse and misquote… we’re all just making a hypothesis based on what we know to be true combined with what we hope to be true. But every once in a while my heart become more playful.

The only picture, at least that I know of,

If you are so inclined you may wish to donate a small sum to help this man and his family.I am also sure that Aaron would appreciate your prayers as well.

Comments welcome.
