Disposition & Memorial

Once there is a dead body, what do you do?

Even fifty years ago, we would have had much more exposure to the dead and dying and from those experiences known the next steps to take.

We discussed what you should know in advance so that when the inevitable occurs to a loved one, you can spend your time doing the meaningful things to honour and memorialize that person.  And setting some of this in place for yourself can be a huge gift to those you leave behind. Knowledge is power!
