Planning for the end of your life is a difficult undertaking. However, making advance arrangements is a gift to the family members you are leaving behind. Grief at the time of a loss is enough for anyone to deal with, without the additional burden of making plans and filling out paperwork.
Our friends at the Green Burial Council have published a new document to help anyone planning for a natural burial. If you choose not to purchase your arrangements in advance, you can still make your wishes known by filling in this worksheet and placing it with your will and other end-of-life documents. The worksheet may also help prompt you to make some of the decisions you need to make concerning end-of-life arrangements. Making these decisions now will eliminate any confusion for your loved ones, and will give them the satisfaction of fulfilling your final wishes.
