wow, how awkward to make final arrangements for a spouse. Talk about the last thing I wanted to do in life. He is adamant that his body go to science, ALS research like his mother and grandfather before him. Dr. Pioro at the Cleveland Clinic took charge of his mother and now my husband. These people call for a follow up, and it is surreal. I know they are doing a job, saying what they have to say, but it doesn't make it easier. No, I don't want to know where his brain will go, or his spine. Yes, they will send his ashes back in 4 to 12 weeks. Yes, they will pay all expenses for transport and cremation. I didn't want to have this conversation and it rocked my world. The things we do for love. It is what he wants, but it is not what I saw myself talking about as I aged. Anyone have experience with giving a loved one to science?
