In the 18th and 19th Centuries, nocturnal "Resurrection Agents" dug up freshly-buried corpses and sold them to medical students or schools for educative dissection. I'm a 20th- & 21st-Century amateur Resurrection Agent who has bequeathed his eyes to the New England Eye & Tissue Bank and the rest of his cadaver to Harvard Medical School. "I'm dying to go to Harvard!" These final physical gifts will help both new & experienced doctors to alleviate human suffering and to teach others in turn. After med students have located the snails & puppy dogs' tails for 1 or 2 years, Harvard will bury my cad for free in a marked grave at Pine Hill Cemetery in Tewksbury, MA and will pay a dominie to pray over it. Hey, "A penny saved is a penny earned." Now retired from various careers (some of which were careens) and volunteer work beginning in the 1940s, I'm researching lives of relatives, teachers, and friends.
