This is exactly 100 words based on a photo writing prompt for Friday Fictioneers for 19 February 2021. Rochelle Wisoff-Fields runs this blog challenge weekly, and anyone is welcome to participate. You’ll do a lot for your writing if you do.

The Photo Writing Prompt.


Description for my blind and visually impaired readers: This is a mail bag. One piece of the mail in it says it contains cremated remains.

The Inspiration

This one’s fictional but based in reality.

The Story: Dad’s Book of Death

My dad orchestrated the world’s most organized passing. “Dad’s Book of Death” included all the numbers I needed to call to cancel his Social Security, cable, and everything else, plus whom to contact at his apartment complex, his investment guy, and the reclamation place that would empty his belongings and either donate them or pass to the appropriate recipients.

No memorial that he will know of, anyway.

He made me pick a necklace charm to hold some of his cremains, as if I could wear my father around my neck.

When the charm arrived, I melted next to the mailbox.

Reading birds on a branch

Thanks for reading!

Cheers to your #BLISSfulLife!!
