    obit. My body is going to a hospital for meds students to practice on. No ceremonies for this atheist.

    It is a good topic though. I went to a workshop called "Planning Ahead" that I thought was run by a lawyer but it was a funeral director.

    He was hilarious and we learned a lot about planning funerals. I remember a woman was there for her mother. Her mother and Aunt were both in their 80's and thought it was way too early to plan their funerals. Ha!

    I'm working on my living will and reading anything and everything I can about death and dying. I just read a book called "Grave Considerations" that looked at the death planning with a great sense of wit.

    Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.

      I still shake my head about my uncle's attitude. He was flabbergasted when his wife died a few years back, because they always thought he'd go first. (Shorter life expectancy for males, and then he was seven years older to boot.) Now she was 84 when she died, and he was 92--she died in between their birthdays.
      He said they always thought they'd live forever.

      Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
