Preparing for the Big Departure – Webinar

Advance Planning

When we go on vacation or move house to a new city we make a plan to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.  Understanding our options and the possible pitfalls, gives us the opportunity to take precautions to ensure that our whole family navigates the adventure as smoothly as possible.

The same is true for when we embark on our death journey. Since we don’t know the time or the date of our departure, it’s important to learn everything possible about what we might expect ahead of time. When we write our wishes down, our families can take care of us as we would like when we can no longer speak for ourselves.

Relieve your loved-ones from making critical health-care and final disposition decisions for you. Complete your directives today! 

NEXT DATE TBD – please check back for details

9 am – 12 pm – PST
