End of life decisions are difficult conversations to have with family and friends, and thus, avoided by many people for fear of placing an undue burden on their loved ones. While children, attorneys, and financial advisors often ask, people still find it difficult to discuss medical and financial directives. They simultaneously overlook significant issues frequently arising after death.
Barbara Sedoric has crafted a innovative solution to help families decipher the important details when the unthinkable does occur. The LastingMatters Organizer enables individuals to document and leave all-inclusive and easy-to-use instructions (in print or online) that can inform and guide their loved ones after death. Topics covered range from funeral plans and obituaries, to online passwords and details concerning family traditions and genealogy.
The Organizer is a tool that can help anyone, at any age, by diminishing the costs, time, and the stress of family pressures surrounding the grieving process. Conversely, the graphics, the pointed questions, and the Organizer’s thoroughness make it easy and intuitive for someone to complete.
Special thanks to Barbara Sedoric (LastingMatters President and Founder) for bringing this to my attention.
