"Life is enjoyable, while death is peaceful. I believe that there is a time to support life, and there is another time to support death and there is nothing wrong with either."

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.

After you watch Barrie, or any of our other videos, we invite you to download your copy of Notes to My Family. It’s easy and free of charge. Simply enter your email address, accept the terms of use, and begin.
