What is appropriate language for obituary where a person has elected whole body donation followed by a cremation. There may be a family gathering at a future date but no visitation, funderal, memorial, grave side service is planned.
Since you have the forethought and desire to write your own obituary, you can say whatever you want to say; an explanation of what your purpose and plan is, or not. It just depends on how much information you decide you want to provide.
My best to you on your upcoming procedure.
