IN LOVING MEMORY of JOHN

[IMAGE]


~~~~~~~ ďTo Remember Me...Ē ~~~~~~~
The day will come when my body will lie upon a white sheet
neatly tucked under four corners of a mattress located in a
hospital busily occupied with the living and the dying. At a certain
moment a doctor will determine that my brain has ceased
to function and that, for all intents and purposes, my life has stopped.
When that happens, do not attempt to instill artificial life
into my body by the use of a machine. And donít call this my
deathbed. Let it be called the Bed of Life, and let my body be taken
from it to help others lead fuller lives.
Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a car race,
a babyís face or love in the eyes of a woman.Give my heart to
a person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless days
of pain. Give my blood to the teen-ager that was pulled from
the wreckage of his car, so that he might live to see his
grandchildren play. Give my kidneys to one who depends
on a machine to exist from week to week. Take my bones, every muscle,
every fiber and nerve in my body and find a way to make a crippled
child walk.
Explore every corner of my brain. Take my cells, if necessary,
and let them grow so that, someday, a speechless boy
will shout at the crack of a bat and a deaf girl will hear
the sound of rain against her window.
When you need me, put your arm around anyone and give them what
you need to give me. Look for me in the people Iíve known or
loved. And if you cannot give me away,
at least let me live in your eyes and not on your mind.
If You must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses
and all prejudices against my fellow man. Give my sins
to the devil. Give my soul to God.
If by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or
word to someone who needs you. If you do all I have asked...I
will live forever.
