    Thank you for posting this! A friend of mine passed away recently. She donated her body to a medical facility. Rumosinc’s response is very touching. I am glad to hear of the care and respect given to the donated body.

    If there wasn’t a $5 fee to register, I would have suggested the one poster look at for fantastic radio. Perhaps, somehow, that poster will stumble across this.
