Because I'm so messed up in the head, I can't help but wonder what the Air Acolytes did with bodies of the the Air Monks. And maybe if they do a memorial service to honor them? What do you think? I hope in an episode they actually do a memorial service and Tenzin and tells his children what happened.

Probably similar to a Tibetan Sky Burial. Well, minus the part of leaving the deceased's body out under the open sky for the birds to consume over a course of days, eventually leaving nothing but bones. They did that because they believe the body is nothing but a vessel for the true person, who is released when the body stops functioning.

I'm guessing there would lots of flowers released to carry on the wind over a simple marker overlooking the mountains.
