I'm fairly young and I travel a lot. I do not want my family to be able to make any decisions whatsoever about my funeral or my body. I know for a fact they will attempt to ensure my wishes are not followed. I know I can appoint other people to handle this issue, but my concern is since they are not blood relatives that they would not be notified until too late, and my family would attempt to claim they were unaware of the documents. Obviously I'm not planning to die soon, but I'd rather be prepared in case something bad happens.
