If family or friends would like to talk to me you can call me at (479) 675-6619 Karen James.

An adaptation of the late Robert Test's (done in my own words, JH (6-1-2000J) of TO REMEMBER ME

At a certain moment a doctor somewhere will determine that my brain has ceased to function, and that for all intents and purposes, my life has stopped. When that happens, please do not attempt to instill artificial life into my body by the use of machine. Let my body be taken and from it help others lead fuller and less stressful lives. Give my sight to someone who has never seen a sunrise, or snowfall, or the love for them that's in another's eyes. Give my blood to someone who needs it in order for them to live so they can see their grandchildren play. Give my heart, with all it's good heartedness, to someone whose own heart has given them nothing but pain. Give my kidneys to someone who depends on a machine in order to live from week to week. Take my bones, every muscle and every fiber and nerve in my body, and find a way to make a crippled person walk. Explore every corner of my brain. Take the cells, if necessary, to find a cure for Alzheimer's, strokes and this horrible bio-polar mental disorder that I have lived with my entire life. Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to make the flowers grow. If you must bury something, let it be my faults, weaknesses, and all of the prejudices of those who I feel wronged me. Plant a tree or a flower for someone else to enjoy. Give my sins to the devil. Give my soul to God. If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind word or deed to someone who needs a helping hand. Or take in a stray animal and give it the love it needs. Laugh about a special "funny" thing we did. If you do all that I have asked you to, I will live forever.
