Heather McManamy endured through a long struggle with cancer, and toward the end, she penned a letter that she asked her husband to share after her death.

Her letter isn’t so much a “goodbye” as it is a celebration of her life. Riddled with humor, jokes, and sound advice, every single one of us will be able to take something from Heather’s post.

She begins with this introduction that gets straight to the point:

She then concludes, somehow writing a paragraph that is both hysterically funny and profoundly moving. She urges people to dance their hearts out at her funeral, and then to treasure every single day of life.
