Okay how many of us have actually planned for our deaths? How important is it to reflect on what things might be like when we're dead and gone from this earth?

You plan for your death to ease the pain and suffering of those that are left behind.

I have chosen to give what I want to pass on to those I want to have before my death, that way there is no hurt feelings or fighting later. Seen it too many times in too many families.

I know what I don't want, and that is leaving my family with a huge funeral bill after my death, especially as I don't want a huge funeral - with people who could not give me the time of day during my life to show up and cry and wonder about how they will continue on without me now that I'm gone. Favorite M.O. of my husband's family there.

I want a party, for friends only - and a service where I'm put in the plot already purchased. No fancy casket, waste of money in my opinion. What do I care? I'm dead.

When you get the news that you have a terminal illness, sadly, this is something that you have to look at and plan for. My husband's Grandmother did this, prepaid for everything down to the spray of flowers she wanted on her casket. Think of all the headaches it saved everyone.

So, when we got the news on my health, this is what I did too. There is a certain comfort in knowing that by taking care of these things now, will hopefully leave my husband and family peace in not having to take care of these things when I'm gone.
