The best memorial

"The best memorial is built in the hearts of those we love'. When I read this line, I instantly thought that this is the kind of memorial that I want. I don't want to be famous and be remembered by those people who really doesn't know the real me. But I want those that I love to really grieve for me when I pass away. I want them to grieve for me because they would really miss me and because they love me. I want to stay in their hearts and leave an impression. When we love someone, we would never really get over their passing away but we will long to be with them until the time that we will also join them. That for me is really the best memorial.

This is because you have a good heart. I have many notions on whatr to do with my mortal remains..and that is to place them wherever my wife would be comfortable...in the ground ..ashes ..blown to the wind..in a lake..or in a tomb..I will not be there..but she will have to visit my body from time to time (if she wishes) but if she went firstr i would cremate her and take her back to the Philippines to be buried by her mother..maybe..that is a long ways off..much can happen as she most likely will out live me...duh

A lot of things could happen that we least expect such as our partner dying long before us. So I go by the thought that one should live and love as if there is no tomorrow. When I die, I don't want to be cremated but would rather have the worms feast on me and fertilize the earth. LOL!

lol..a lady i worked with at Ford Motor told me her father was a farmer and he wanted his body thrown to the "pigs" as then the pigs would get some good out of it..but I thought this was just a joke..then years later some hunters disappeared in Michigan and the local people threw the hunters bodies to the pigs and the pigs ate everything...so much for ham or pork chops.

Ewww... i also remember my father telling us to just let his body wraps in some coconut leaves and bury him. We should not waste money with expensive coffin, but I know we would NEVER do that and I know he will hound us tell kingdom king if ever we will actually do that...again ewww!
