Sandy Asper is still wondering what she's going to be when she grows up after 40 years of teaching in junior high school where she was affectionately called "The Great White".
Constantly looking for relevance with an irreverent attitude, she has written one hilarious book on dying, YES, THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY THAT I MIGHT DIE...SOMEDAY (A LIGHTHEARTED WORKBOOK).
Sandy and Bruce (the bemused spouse) have three children and six grandchildren, two of whom have illustrated her three "Grammy" books: My Grammy is a Surfer, Grammy is a New York Cab Driver, and Grammy is a Rock Star.
Yes There is the Possibility That I Might Die ...Someday
This book will definitely not be the usual book on death and dying. In fact the preponderance of information will be about after you have left the scene. The hard and fast evidence is that you (and everyone else on earth) will in fact die. The good news about this unalterable fact is just that; everyone has to do it. That means that all the good-looking, rich and fun-loving people whom you now currently hate, will have to do it too. Another comforting thought is that there have certainly been a number of people who have died very successfully before us, and so we won't be alone in this experience. This is not going to be a book about religious or philosophical beliefs, unless of course you want it to be, because this is your book. It is meant to be a rather lighthearted approach to what will be the inevitable eventually.
If done correctly, this book should encourage those weak-hearted individuals,that would be almost all of us, who would rather live in denial right up until the last second, to make a couple of plans. In that way those who are in charge of the remains will have a clue who they are burying, or throwing to the winds.
Call me crazy, but when I die I would rather choose how it's all going to go, at least one last time.It would be just swell to save those relatives and friends all those crabby hours, and bad decisions regarding my funeral, memorial service, wake, or whatever else I want to have happen to me after I bid adieu...
