Embrace the death panel, why sweat the small stuff? I claim a percentage of the fantasy death panel game where the aged and infirm can select their own death panel from famous people alive or dead, real or imagined. For my own panel I might choose Jose Cuervo, Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, and Johnnie Walker.

That sounds more like the Vomit Panel...

i went to an estate planning meeting a few days ago. i figured if it was free I might as well see if things have changed since I made out my will.

And some changes have come about but none that I needed to deal with.

But something I had never seen before was a panel of Ministers from different faiths who spoke about planning your funeral. There were forms to fill out about what order of service you wanted, what Hymns should be sung or what special music you wished to be played. Or not if that is what you wished.

The thinking was someone was going to plan your funeral. It might as well be you. And after you shuffled off this form could be provided to the Funeral home to guide them in how to carry out your wishes.

They were not offering any services at all. They just gave their perspective on the funeral service that almost everyone has. They told stories about how the survivors would wander into their offices and ask them what they think the deceased would have wanted. Sometimes these were people who had not been to church in 20 years and the Minister had never met them.

So some mainline churches are offering funeral preplanning forms. Most of the folks there didn't look like they would be needing to use such forms for maybe 40 years but if they wanted to take advantage of preplanning their funeral the forms were there for the asking. Most of them didn't look like they would need a Will for maybe 40 years but everyone was talking about getting one.

And no one was asked what their religion was. The forms are very general in nature and could apply to any faith. If you have a specific faith with specific ways of doing things you might want to ask your Minister if they can provide you with such a form or if they would consider creating one.

The most important thing about such preplanning is that it takes a burden of the survivors who are usually busy dealing with their loss.
