3) Turned into 240 pencils

240 pencils can be made from an average body of ash - a lifetime supply of pencils for those left behind. Only one pencil can be removed at a time, it is then sharpened back into the box causing the sharpenings to occupy the space of the used pencils. Over time the pencil box fills with sharpenings - a new ash, transforming it into an urn.
