I want to do just as my deceased mother, no funeral, no obit, nada.

I have my husband as my Facebook legacy contact so he can say good-by for me there.

I want to just disappear when I croak.

I startled my trust attorney/estate planner when I told her that I wanted to be buried ASAP (within 24 hours if at all possible), no embalming, no service, nada - after the hospital took whatever they could use for organ donation. If this old carcass can help someone else I'm all for it, but everything else is just dross. I know my late H was violently opposed to the organ donation, but he's gone and can't object any more.
