The Wishes of Albion R. Simmons

The Miami News, July 2, 1910

"I wish my body to be enclosed in canvas and tar, at the least expense possible, and buried in the gulf stream, east of Biscayne Bay. Music, if funds enough are on hand, and anything friends may wish to say. No formal funeral services or prayers, unless Dr. Faris should desire to do so if he is living. Let there be no solemn ceremony, but as much gaiety as possible."

"I have perfect confidence in my Maker. Death is inevitable; a part of the great mystery. As a believer in evolution, in my opinion it is best to go back to the elements which life springs."
