Start the Conversation
Funerals are for the living, and a tribute to those who have gone on. Additionally, by outlining how you would like to be remembered, your loved ones can properly remember your unique life, and share the memories that made you special to them.
Having a pre-planning conversation with your family about end of life decisions is vital to ensure that your wishes are carried out before and after your death. Additionally, pre-planning allows your family to fully grieve and process your death without worrying about minute details. This may be a difficult subject for some families to approach. Don't worry, that is normal. The important part is to clearly specify your wishes, and talk to your family about what you want.
