Contents of the Dead Man's Pockets by Jack Finney

Okay so this isn't really a book but it is my very favorite short story. It's weird and slightly twisted but it is a great story about priorities and what you leave behind once your life is over.
Check it out here . I don't remember when I read this (Zanne, any idea?) but it really made me think about my life and how I wanted to be remembered.

I think about this story sometimes when my life is spiraling out of control and it helps me remember what is truly important.

New to me. I am glad he chose to laugh and go join his wife.

It was IB English, because I remember the title. Can't remember which year. Sophomore probably.
