Announcing Notes to My Family Online
How do we best honor a life? Often it begins with a conversation, one that includes listening, patience, understanding, and acceptance. Sometimes it requires courage. Such essential conversations can be difficult, but are so valuable. Sharing your wishes with those you love brings everyone closer, and creates comfort through understanding.
An important part of the process is writing down your plans and organizing your personal information. To help, we offer Notes to Your Family, so that your planning can reflect thoughtful and meaningful decisions that allow others to honor your wishes.
In this brief video, Barrie Fiske shares her family’s journey through end-of-life planning for her mother, her father, and, looking ahead, for herself. With compassion and common sense, she helps us understand the value of thinking and talking through these important decisions.
