Since the university provides last time donors good music, I think it would also be a great idea to meet the people who will work on me for the last time. Here's the plan. I am going to call the medical school and ask if I can have my musical farewell ceremony while I am still alive. After the music is over, I will invite all the first year students to the closest party place so that we all have a great time. When I do go, those students will remember the party and will definitely have an easier time working with my cadaver. Can anyone of you imagine how much easier it would be for a first year student to work on the cadaver of just a strange person instead of a stranger? Mervyn1250Lobo
