When I think about final plans and what to do with my body, I know in my heart I want what is simple and kind. I do not want a lot of fuss. I only want the essentials done to my body. I want my body washed, anointed, dressed and kept cool until the funeral. My body has been good to me considering what I have put it through. In the end I do not want to put it through a lot of extra effort just to preserve it for a few extra days. I hope that my body will get the honor and respect it so deserves. I have made plans for all my final decisions that have to be made. I hope the simplicity of the plan will allow those who have to actually have to carry it out a chance to catch their breaths a moment, and spend time with each other in love. I hope I can learn to live more simply—to live by the ideal of what is essential so that when my time on this earth draws to a close those closest to me will automatically embrace my simple and gentle plan.
