Useful practical information on funeral planning. As well as wisdom and musings. Wish I had read this before we had 4 family deaths with in a year. Even though I have over 7 years experience as a Hospice Nurse I found it helpful.

Practical, anecdotal, charts and form letters are probably helpful to someone...
Wish I had not spent money from our church group on this one.
