Taking Creative Control of Funerals
Planning a funeral is not what it used to be. Today, people have more options and are taking charge of their loved ones’ services.
We Need to Get Comfortable Talking about Death
It happened again recently: someone used the word “if” instead of “when” in referring to their certain, though hopefully distant, death. Sometimes saying “if I die” is appropriate. Maybe you are going to attempt some death-defying acrobatic routine and you want to make sure that your affairs are in order in case the stunt fails. However, I notice that it is pretty common for people to use the phrase “if I die” when what they really mean is “when I die.” They use “if I die” as if they might, in fact, be someone who won’t die.
