This spring, I read a story about a young woman who decided to finish her Grandma's bucket list.
Does this happen often? I wondered.
Embracing the bucket lists of others provides 'instant life purpose' and a unique form of tribute. Some orphaned bucket lists 'trend' on social media and are fulfilled many times over.
A Bucket List states actions and experiences sought before death. It may be committed to memory or paper, composed thoughtfully or on a whim, born of envy or emptiness.
Susan Vieria was the recipient of a heart donation, and committed herself to completing the adventuresome goals of her donor, Kristina Chesterman. The 21 year-old nursing student was killed by a drunk driver in the Fall of 2013. On her unfinished bucket list: travel, ride a camel, and learn to fly a plane!
