    • All sorted every i doted and t crossed on this .....

      Money ready for the party and location picked ........ where my ashes are to be strewn and money for Eurostar in a separate account ....

      There will be no queries I have done a manual ready – I want a huge loud send off and everyone in thier best clothes unless black is that seasons colour – the fab4 fashionistas off to Paris on Eurostar 1st class and champagne breakfast and my ashes to be poured out from the urn while on the Pont Saint Michel in Paris .... having a toast to love, life and laughter and then they have to go shopping.

      I have sorted the money out and hopefully a few surprises for people ... who have helped along my way payback time .

    • My bookkeeper daughter informed that anyone over the age of 18 really ought to have a will and something written down pertaining to funeral arrangements.

      I told her she can have whatever kind of funeral she wants for me.  I’m not going to boss everyone around even after I’m gone.

      Hubby would prefer to be cremated and his ashes scattered on a wheat field, but his daughter won’t hear of it.  She about freaked out on my when I mentioned it to her.

    • No, I have not talked to them about it, they have both lost loved ones too recently to do this right now.

    • My mother has talked with me and my brother extensively about her wishes. My husband and I have opened up discussion about our wishes with the kids (we both know each other’s preferences), but it hasn’t yet been heavily discussed.

    • Both of my parents are deceased. But I learned some really valuable info while dealing with everything.
      A living trust.....yes yes yes! And from my understanding is better to have vs a will.
      Funeral wishes....personally I don’t care so I leave it up to my children on how they want to do it. Since cremation service and a funeral service are close in cost (unless you have no service)it makes me no difference. While my mom was still alive but very ill we planned her funeral the way we wanted it (her request) and when she actually passed we only had to call the director to say when.
      Medical decisions... you need to make your wishes known and also have appointed people to legally make decisions if you are unable. (most hospitals or hospice can give you a booklet to complete).
      I personally gor my stuff in order while going thru it with my mom (again her request).

    • I have no children, but I have discussed it with my brothers.

      I told Rick that if he doesn’t respect my wishes, I’m coming back as a squirrel in my next life.

      And the first thing I’m gonna do is hunt him down and run right up his pants leg!

    • my husband and i have many times.  there have been touch and go situations with my illness in the past.  we do so every so often just to bring the topic out into the open and make it a comfortable family discussion.  my husband and i frequently fall ill. we talk about the kinds of life skills and things they need to do for themselves once we are gone.  as much as it is a painful topic the future of our children is vitally important.
