Patricia, that's a great way to give to others. Thanks for bringing it up.

I filled out a form to donate my remains to medical science. This is the way I thought of helping instead of just donating organs, & the university can decide what to do with any or all. I received my confirmation letter, so it's all settled.

I like that quote! It's peaceful.

Hi Jenny, and very sorry to hear about your loss. Here's a link to an article that helped me in the past. I hope it helps you, too.

A family member just passed away. This is the first time as an atheist a family member I loved has passed away. It was my mother. I am struggling with the idea that she is gone forever. I don't want to fall back into that old idea of an afterlife but I am just in shock right now and want to see her again so badly. But I'm terrified of the funeral and seeing my relatives, I've been estranged for awhile. What do I do?
