    Hi Priscilla,

    We’re not sure what you’re asking – the details are right here on this page. What specifically are you looking to find out that you haven’t learned here?

    I have a few questions ..
    I like to donate my body when I pass away .. but don’t most deaths have to go threw an autopsy for people who have life insurance ?
    On my driver licenses I sign the back to be a organ donor is that something that will cause a problem ?
    When I pass away how dose my husband contact you ?
    Is the body at the hospital or somewhere else for you to pick up this info. here dose not say much …
