I am on the register back in the UK for organ donation and my family are aware of my wishes.

Really don't care what they take of mine after death, only going to get burnt anyway!

At least with the register, I don't think the family needs to give the ok, takes away hard decisions at a very difficult time, as to be honest.

If it was my child who was the potential donor, I don't know that I would be able to say yes, even though I know its the right thing to do.

Seeing as you're filled with the giving spirit, there'll be not much left to burn...

Re the child, or anyone, hope we all are blessed with long and happy lives...
