Does anyone have a suicide note or anything they plan to leave behind for anyone who ultimately finds you? Mine is my signature but in case you are too lazy to look down, I simply took this quote:

It’s all going to be over soon.
No more pain. No more abuse. No more hate.
I’ll be going ahead to a better place. A happier place.
A place where none of the bad people can hurt me.
A place where I can’t hurt me.
So there’s nothing to be sad about. This is a happy day.
It’s the happiest day of my life.

I think I would/will leave one if I can come up with something good and beautiful, something happy and positive. I don't know if I want to give a full breakdown of my reasons as many of them are very personal to me and it would probably end up having to be a small book if I really wanted to say everything in my mind and heart in detail. It could, perhaps, end up having a somewhat of a sad tone overall, although there would certainly be no mystery left around my death and the reasons for it if I did that.

In either case I would leave money for my cremation though so my family wouldn't have to pay for it. :)

I’ve got one saved on my laptop but it’s too risky to write it out just yet for my parents to find, When I’m 100% and ready I will write it and leave it lying on my bed.

If at all, I'd keep it strictly informational without unnecessary romanticisation.

On the other hand I like how Blink182 turned a suicide note into a song
Hoppus said the song's inspiration came from "reading a magazine where some teenage kid had killed himself and left a letter for his family." Untrue online rumors purported that the song was inspired by a friend from Hoppus' high school years who committed suicide

me to I probably want to leave something along the lines of "I'm sorry for the pain this causes but I couldn't handle the pain of life anymore. This is no one's fault but my own."

If anyone is writing with the sole intent to disperse guilt, the suicide note of a mathematician is good place to look for inspiration:

"Until yesterday I had no definite intention of killing myself. But more than a few must have noticed that lately I have been tired both physically and mentally. As to the cause of my suicide, I don't quite understand it myself, but it is not the result of a particular incident, nor of a specific matter. Merely may I say, I am in the frame of mind that I lost confidence in my future. There may be someone to whom my suicide will be troubling or a blow to a certain degree. I sincerely hope that this incident will cast no dark shadow over the future of that person. At any rate, I cannot deny that this is a kind of betrayal, but please excuse it as my last act in my own way, as I have been doing my own way all my life." --Yutaka Taniyama

That being said: Some may find it worthwhile to address the note to specific individuals (since it may well be the case that there are some family members/friends whom are innocent, and others not so much). If ethics/morality is your goal then it may be in the best interest of others that you not only disperse the guilt of the decent/innocent, but also leave a warning to those (who matter to you) of others in the family whom you could see causing problems down the line. Personally, I've taken it upon myself as a final task to point out the negligent/inept financial and parenting behavior of someone in the family, for example. Social dysfunction/flaws can become more obvious in one's final weeks, so this gives one a special perspective on matters such as these. Some may find it worthwhile to simply, clearly, and briefly bring the unethical/immoral behavior to the attention of others, even for the possibility that it may well spare them some future grief or unnecessary trouble, if anything.
