Do you know what arrangements your spouse or parents would like to have enacted upon their passing?
What type of burial would you like after you die—are you familiar with all your options? Do you have that plan in writing?
Whether you are well or are facing a terminal illness, end-of-life planning helps make your wishes clear to those who love you.
But we often put off making those plans because it seems morbid, or we are too busy.
Jane Duncan Rogers published her book Gifted By Grief three years after her husband's death. Readers'
response to this book eventually led to her founding Before I Go Solutions®. This unusual social enterprise trains people to become End of Life Plan Facilitators and online programs for those wishing to create their own comprehensive end-of-life plans. Jane is also the author of Before I Go: The Essential Guide to Creating a Good End of Life Plan and the creator of the End of Life Planning card deck.
