Postmortem trifecta

Posted on Wed, Sep 23, 2009 at 3:07 PM

I read with interest your last cover story, "Dying to go green" (Sept. 17, 2009). It made me think of the green mantra: Reduce, reuse, recycle. One could follow through with that regarding one's body by being an organ donor (reduce/reuse) and then donate your body to medical science (recycle). When they're through with whatever is left of you, you could stipulate being planted as per R.C. Hooker's natural burial plan. A trifecta of a dying sort.

Editor's note: R.C. Hooker died Sept. 21 in his Somers home. He was 64. He was buried the next day at Natural Cemeteries in the Swan Valley.
