Dying to Go Green – with guest speaker Sarah Sunnucks, Preplanning Funeral Director
Thinking about the inevitability of one’s death is a subject that few of us like to consider. For many, actually moving ahead with pre-planning and making important end-of-life decisions is even more difficult to act on. Join us for an open discussion on the five critical questions that will give you peace of mind. Our guest speaker will bring her expertise to these topics and also discuss the options available for a “green”, eco-friendly funeral.
1. Where is your will and why do you need one.
2. Who do you call if someone dies?
3. What is your final destination; don’t leave it for someone else to decide.
4. Where are your passwords, banking info, marriage certificate and other important documents?
5. Who do you trust to make your decisions, and do they know what you want?
