Many people have a hard time talking about a serious illness or death, let alone planning for it. This conversation can never be started too early but can most assuredly come too late! I want to assist you to calmly talk and plan your wishes, hopefully, long before a medical crisis or concern arises; shorter timeframe of course if life dictates. I want to help you share your wishes with loved ones but also provide direct guidance as needed. I will assist anyone who is curious. The gift of having your wishes written down and shared will allow anyone caring for you the ability to attend to you knowingly, peacefully, and with loving confidence.
