Frances Shani Parker: Detroit Free Press End-of-Life Article
On matters of life and death, making decisions now will help loved ones in the future. Recently, I was interviewed with others by Detroit Free Press staff writer Patricia Montemurri. The resulting news article with photos by photographer Eric Seals highlights the importance of end-of-life conversations, decision options, and documentation.
Among other comments, I emphasize the trouble people will spare loved ones left behind after they die if wishes are prepared in advance. Read the Detroit Free Press article for well-rounded perspectives on how others are responding to this critical issue, how you can begin your own conversations, and resources that will support you in carrying out your personal plans. The hourglass sands of time are running out. Now is the time to create the ending you want for the final chapter of your life story.
