Start the Conversation

Every family is unique. For some families, it might be a casual conversation over dinner; for others, a formal gathering. Regardless of your approach, the conversation is much easier to have when death is not imminent. Bringing up the subject with loved ones earlier in life when they are younger, and most likely healthier, makes the topic easier to discuss and keeps the focus on the celebration of a life rather than an impending loss. Let your loved one know that their wishes will protect you from having to second guess and being left with possible doubts about your decisions.

Pre-planning is an act of love, a generous gift to your family and friends, allowing them to mourn and grieve peacefully.
