I am sharing what a friend mailed to me for your consideration. I have already pledged my organs and my signed papers are with a hospital. Our children are told about it.

An Article From The ' Cincinnati Post'

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 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 don't call this my death bed. 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 baby's 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 teenager who 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.

Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to the winds to help the flowers grow.

If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses and all prejudice against my fellow men.

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.

One needs to have a lot of courage and a big heart to do such a great sacrifice. It is a very noble deed which not many in our Indian society accept.
My husband and I have also signed in for the organ donation when we took our drivers license, incase some mishap happens and we die in a road accident..

You are right. It is really a noble deed which many do not accept as such. My heartfelt congratulations to you both for taking such bold step. Take care


Do think of rest organs also as it may save someone's life. Take care


Hope you do not delay it now. I feel what is the use of my organs after I am gone except if it can save someone's life. Take care


I am so glad to see you here. I have come to terms with whatever it is and have gone back to my positive outlook. One needs to, isn't it? I shall be very happy if you can write to me at my e-mail id which is . Take care
