Everything you do in life is insignificant, but its important you do it anyway ~Ghandi

When I die throw my ashes into the sea
Bury me with the flowers so I may help them grow
Toss me into the wind to be blown away
Scatter me in the city to be taken in the lights
Whatever you do, do not keep me on your mantle
Do not grieve over me and do not cry
Smile as you sprinkle me so I may bring life to what I touch
Where ever I may be, I will always be in your heart

I want to be cremated when I die.
