1. I would like to take my favorite photos of me and my significant other because he is my better half and majority of my life has been spent with him experiencing new things and creating new memories. To honor the moments, I have truly lived and enjoyed life on earth. This Ophelia painting is an inspiration to monumentalize my husband and I together in love and at peace. The Ophelia painting is showing acceptance, nature, peace, and soul, the main things I would expect for my time. There are never any answers just a way of life and in this picture the woman is laying there still and unbothered. I would love a moment like this to accept time with my husband, to lay still and be together at peace.
2. I would like to rest in a cemetery right beside my husband. My whole life was spent with this other human who has been there through the worst and the best of times. We have this loving bond that has allowed me to grow into the woman I want to be and live the life I want to live and all hand in hand beside the man I love who I have watch grow throughout his life. Life isn’t simple but at the end of it all my only wish is to have him right beside me as we take on a new eternal adventure and the 520 BCE sculpture, Sarcophagus with Reclining Couple, resembles my exact burial wishes. This sculpture represents the internal bond between husband and wife, both the male and female are accepting their next life together side by side and as they go they are reflecting on their past life by looking over it.
3. I would like to be blessed within my church and I would want a celebration to reflect my time on earth. Death is a very natural aspect of life so instead of mourning or crying I would want my loved ones to celebrate and gather for my favorite meals, dance, sing, enjoy every breath for I am going to be enjoying life on the other side at peace. I also wish that my other ones participate in Dia de los Muertos, remembering the dead and honoring their memory. This is something I haven’t had the chance to do but it is my goal to do this for the next dia de los muertos.
