“When I go don’t put me in a cold steel box in a hole of earth and rocks. Let fire cure my body ills, and free my spirit as God wills. Then let the ashes that remain become a part of the sun and rain, and settle on the mountains high where flowers smile up to the sky and let my spirit drift forever as “drift wood” on the river.”
