I've read on multiple threads that Ray will not have a memorial service per his request and that he will be cremated. On one hand this is good because it's confirms his sincerity and humility and shows he doesn't seek praise or attention. It's more evidence that his books were written honestly and weren't written out of spite or for just monetary gain. On the other hand this strikes me as a bit selfish. Many people including myself were looking forward to attending his memorial and meeting others who he helped awaken. The service could of been conducted by former bethelites, do's, co's, etc. who knew Franz and could share interesting personal stories about his life and he helped them. It could of been such a wonderful celebration of a man who lived such a wonderful life and helped so many. I'm little hurt that he requested not to have a memorial, but I'm sure he had a good reason and I'll respect his decision.
