Funeral Wishes for John Smith
(Last updated January 30, 2012 3:36:11 PM CST)

The following information represents my personal wishes regarding the handling of my body and the final arrangements following my death.  Wherever possible, I would like my family and friends to honor these wishes to the best of their abilities.

Existing Will
As of the date on this document, I have not yet prepared a Last Will and Testament.  As a result, this Funeral Wishes document serves as the most complete and accurate reflection of my personal wishes regarding the final arrangements after my death.

Body or Organ Donation
I do not wish to donate my entire body to a medical institution after my death. However, I do wish to donate some of the organs in my body to benefit people who are in need of organ and/or tissue transplantation. The only organs I wish to donate are: Kidneys; Heart; Bone and bone marrow; Liver; Lungs;

Handling of the Body
If possible, immediately following my death I would like my body to be left undisturbed for 24 hours. I do not wish my body to be embalmed. If a post-mortem requires the consent of my next of kin, I would like them to give it. Between my death and the funeral I have no preference for where my body should be kept.

Final Disposition
I would like my body to be buried under ground. I would like to have my casket carried by the following specific people: my brother, Jack Smith; my uncle, Tom Jackson; my best friend, Andrew Williams; and my colleague, Sally Jones. I would like my body to be transported to the burial site in a hearse. I would like my family to be transported to the burial site in a stretch limousine. I would like to be buried in a cemetery.

Funeral Plan
In general, I would like the total cost of my funeral to be as economical as possible.
