Making your funeral wishes known.

Postby newgroundrodney » March 4th, 2019, 4:56 pm

Following a recent death in the family, it was good to know that the deceased's wishes in regard to her funeral were known to the family.
Not all families manage to have these discussions, some finding it too difficult to do so.
Ask YOURSELF the question, 'if I died right now, would my family know what my wishes are?'
The last few years, it has been a bit of a personal crusade on my part, to make sure that people record this information, so that their surviving families know their wishes. So, if anyone would like to print out this question sheet, fill it out, and pass it on to your family, please feel free to do so. Make more copies if you like, and get others to do it too. I've done mine, and it's in a file ready for when it's needed.

This is a good idea. For instance, my wife and I have casually discussed these sorts of things but when one of us is dead and the other one dribbling away in a nursing home it’s unlikely the details will be recalled.
