'Die with dignity'

Then get dumped at the bottom of a lake.

At least 300 urns containing human remains have been dumped in a lake near where the Swiss suicide firm Dignitas operates, it has been claimed.
Police have launched an investigation after scores were discovered on the bed of Lake Zurich. The urns, lying in 'a big heap', bear only the logo of a cremation service thought to be used by Dignitas, the controversial organisation where more than 100 Britons have ended their lives.

...
Record numbers of Britons who are suffering from terminal illnesses are queuing up for assisted suicide at Dignitas. Almost 800 have taken the first step to taking their lives by becoming members of Dignitas.

Of course once Dignitas has earned their fee for killing you, your dignity is sort of irrelevant.
