“We don’t wanna deal with death; we never wanna deal with death. So it’s a big decision to make that, to go in and prearrange because now you are actually facing up to it.”

“I think when you are facing death and everything, you are in a kind of state of shock, and you have to make major decisions. We were able to make those decisions with clarity of mind.”

“I would be horrified if I had to make decisions about my parents and I did not know their wishes. In fact, it’s brought up lots of conversations even with our current siblings about, you know, “What do you want when that time comes?”

“The willingness to grapple with the serious subject such as death, while you are alive and well, is healthy.”

“And it’s difficult for some people talk about before, but it’s so important to talk about it, to pre-plan, to find out what the funeral home offers.”

“The biggest thing I can say is, you are going to die. It’s birth and death are inevitable. And if you don’t want to leave your family with a burden, deal with the issue. Talk to somebody about pre-planning, about getting it all looked after. Because at the time it happens, nobody’s mind is really straight on having to go and arrange everything.
