A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die helps families avoid emotional and financial disaster with advance planning tips. Provides a light touch on a dark subject.
We plan our finances, our families, our retirement, just about everything except our funerals. Without end-of-life planning, life’s other plans can come undone. Just as talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, talking about funerals won’t make you dead – and your family will benefit from the conversation. A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die provides the information, inspiration and tools to plan and implement creative, meaningful and memorable end-of-life rituals for people and pets. It sheds light on a dark subject. A Good Goodbye uses gentle humor to convey the vital information about funeral arrangements that most people don’t learn about until faced with a death in the family.
