                                  Answer:
   
   The act of donating organs does honor to the deceased; many of those
   about to die would gladly forego any other honor and donate organs for
   this purpose (Kid. 32; Shulhan Arukh Yoreh Deah 364.1, 368.1; Isserles
   Responsa #327). Note that if you plan on donating organs, you should
   always make sure your family is aware of your wishes.
