I'm a signed organ donor. Past that IDGAF. Harvest me, mourn me, move on.

Donate as much of me as I can, then burn it up. Don't care where they put the ashes. I'd like to be a tree like Fran posted, but only if my family didn't know what tree I was. If the tree died it'd really mess with them. :/

Donate what can be used. Past that, I would love to be cremated and then taken on Shore to Shore in Michigan, being scattered along the way.

Whether or not that will happen, I do not know. But that is what I like to think will happen.

And... taking pictures of a dead body is just nasty, unless for CSI work. Still creepy, but needed creepy.

I suppose taking photos of a dead body seems weird but everyone grieves in their own way so if my family needed to have that experience I would have them put me on display however they wanted. My greatest wish upon mydeath is nit what they do with my shell but that my family can find some peace

A friend's husband died suddenly a few months ago, and someone in his family took a couple of pictures. I don't think it's creepy really, just not how I'd like to remember someone. My grandpa and grandma's funerals were very traumatic for me as I was quite close to them. That's not something I have any desire to relive through photos.

I am an organ donor and I would like to be cremated.

When it comes down to it, though, I am okay with whatever best brings peace to my family.

There are families that have stillborn babies that request to have photos done. Would I? I have no idea. I don't want to even imagine that kind of grief let alone how i would handle it. I likely would not have taken photos of my grandfather when he passed but if my grandmother needed that More power to her.

I've heard of that too. I can't say exactly what I would do in that aweful situation, but my instinct says I would not want a photo like that. I can't fault those that grieve that way though.

I know you weren't trying to be funny but that just seems like a perfect event for a dark comedy.
