I'm Not Dead Yet!

Do you know when you are going to die?

Of course not. Hopefully, decades will pass before you will face your Maker. You will work, raise children, enjoy your marriage, travel and simply love life.

But then, inevitably, someone you love will die. And one day, that someone will be you.

Are you ready for it?

I'm Not Dead Yet is the blog for those who plan to die. This may sound morbid but when we pre-arrange our funerals, purchase cemetery spaces in advance, or even reserve our shelf in the mausoleum, we give our families the greatest gift possible on what will be the worst day of their lives: the gift of love.  They will be grateful, knowing that you have spared them the emotional and financial pain of arranging your final affairs.

In the future, postings will detail the benefits of pre-planning. Also, I will write about the process of death and dying, as well as trends within the funeral industry. I will post regularly so check back often for new information.

Please feel free to comment upon what I write - and comment on what others write as well. The only requirement is civility.  I will read every posting prior to its publication; if it is nasty, I will delete it.

So enjoy the blog and let me know how I can make it even better. Happy reading and, as the Pythons would say:

Always walk on the bright side of life.
