  1. Do: grieve however you want.
    Everyone grieves differently, and you absolutely have my blessing to just continue on with your life like nothing happened, if that's how you deal with death.
  2. Don't: you dare bury me.
    I don't want to be put in the ground. It creeps me out. Just cremate me.
  3. Do: whatever you want with my ashes.
    Give some of me to family members. Make me into a necklace. Mix my ashes with your ink for a tattoo. Put me on your mantel.
  4. Don't: spend a ton of money on my funeral.
    I'm not saying don't throw me a funeral, but there's no need to go into debt over it. Whatever you can afford to throw for me is fine.
  5. Do: feel free to honor my memory by adopting a shelter dog and naming her Lexie.
    That would be awesome.
