Taking the Taboo out of Death
Many people are afraid to talk about death until unescapably confronted with it... and then it can be too late.

What happens when we die?

Did we give him a good send-off? Was it what he would have wanted?

He's unconscious... He can't tell me what he wants... He wanted something spiritual but not the usual kind of thing...

He wasn't religious. What shall I do for the service? What can I do?

I just wish we'd talked more! I wish we'd made up.

I miss her. Do you think she still knows what I'm doing in my life? And the grandchildren?

Is cremation bad for the environment?

Can I have a cardboard coffin? Will it fit under the bed? How much will it cost?

How can I tell the family that this is what I want? We never/they won't talk about dying...

I didn't say "Goodbye" properly. I didn't know how to. I didn't want him to know he was dying.

Can I really be buried in the garden?

Why didn't we talk about all this before she died?

She didn't leave a will. What can I do?

She's in a vegatative state. Could we have done more?
