A sensitive and humorous approach to funerals and the options now available. Get these and other questions answered: • What are the basics you need to know about end of life options – traditional burial? Cremation? Green alternatives? • Are green options really green? • Are there sites for natural burials in Michigan? • What plans should be made for a person’s pets? • How do you honor a deceased person’s memory – A traditional funeral? A memorial service? A party? • How do you make your end of life wishes known or help a loved one express his or her end of live desire? • What about end of life options for pets? Presenter: Jodi M.
