Learning To Love You More




Assignment #51
Describe what to do with your body when you die.

The first thing I want done when I die is nothing to do with my body. I want my family, friends, husband, children, and all others to know that I lived my life to the fullest and would not change a thing. I feel like I have lived my life and accomplished some of my dreams at twenty, so anything after this is a great addition. I do not want people to cry when I am gone.
As for my body if able I would like to donate my organs to others who need them. Then I want to be cremated and have half of my ashes spread on Mt. Hood in a special place by my brother Brian and the other half spread from the huge rock on the Oregon Coast (my family knows what I am talking about) by my father, my step-mom, and my little brother. I want my ashes on Mt. Hood because my brother and I have spent so many days together becoming the brother and sister that we never were when I was growing up. I want my ashes along the Oregon Coast because that is where my dad and I always went to get away from softball and other crazy times and then after two special people were brought into my life my dad and I shared going to the beach with them. My dad and step-mom were also married on a beach, and my little four year old brother and I always go to the beach when we can find an entire day to go. Having my ashes in these places will make me happy and I will know that my family will always have a piece of me with them when they are enjoying the rest of their lives!
I also want all my friends and family to know that I love them and will see them again someday.
