Tuesday, December 10 at 6:00 p.m.
We plan and prepare for most events that we deem important, yet few of us prepare our loved ones with instructions on what to do when we die. Making final arrangements can be overwhelming for those close to you. Clear choices may be difficult to make. When the death of a loved one occurs, there are many decisions that will have to be made in a very short period of time. In this session, Dr. Oliver presents a 45-page funeral planning document, “Final Wishes.” This document identifies your wishes, from the information needed to correctly write your obituary to your desired post-service event. Each participant will receive a free copy of “Final Wishes” for their use. Hosted by Lisa C. Oliver, EdD, Death, Dying and Bereavement Educator. Adults only. Call 404-613-7000 for more information.
