As much as our culture tries to avoid the topic, death is something we all must face. The older one gets, the more important it is to start an open, honest discussion about certain end-of-life preparations. How will you spend your remaining days? Who will take care of you as you approach the end? What sort of legal matters should you get taken care of before it is too late? What is the easiest way to help friends and family cope with your impending death? These are all important questions to ask yourself when you are dealing with end-of-life preparations.
