You know I know things that John would demand for sure about two things they've done that they do it because it's what they do it now because they have to do it and so so I'm pretty well rooted in the being a big fan of Korean maternity to the point where I thought. All right you have been telling you guys a long time about pre planning and about take caring and they're taking care of things and you know they should live by my own words and so. I'm beginning this turning myself now. With John and his team member. It it sounds odd to say I am excited about it but I'm excited about bit and potentially. Taking care of something that nobody will have to worry about it meant that brings a lot of peace of mind to me. Your. A US standard kids.

Been through this process that they regretted it clear that they felt that it was. A painful difficult process on the contrary. The few to sense of relief the sense that it's taking care and it's one thing I can kind of cross off my mental debacle list of things I need to do. But I'm. I'm planning over the next couple weeks this rule will be the attorney David I'll be and and and I'll be cheering about it as we go along and and you may even be able to see some of that today here along the way both. I'm to me the exciting part of this is on the spend a couple of weeks making sure that. My family is back and have to worry about how. I wanna be remembered how this should all work it's all going to be planned to name just what you can to put her away. John and his team will hold onto it until it's needed in the rest to turn you just get back delivering your happy healthy wonderful life absolutely hand and no guns and god god forbid. You need it soon we know we we hope it's a long time didn't end there but when you needed it's there stand down and it'll make things so much each. There and I think too it can be kind of occur thought it thing you can be kind of me and look at this you know for your own satisfaction. Why do you know what a what if I lived how you know yes absolutely and and then you know a pretty sight I appreciated you actually. AUSC mature looking forward to this report dead end kid that's weird bright idea to save you would kind of where it kind. But I'd take this school this is a whole lot easier than a colonoscopy. Other things I can take a write a and the community and we do in this only in the space of maybe two hours. We can.

When applied fed in Washington and indeed guide you through it and if that's not enough guidance good team over career at a maternity is just a phone call or visit away from helping you through all this stuff so. You know I do I aim anywhere that that's where men on this journey ended in John's here aside from that. I know we've talked about this before over the years how this whole process of of memorial some remembering and paying tribute and in this can't you know end of life for members has changed so dramatic. Absolutely yeah it has since I I think it's evolved more toward. A celebration of life but. But still with an honest acknowledgment that someone we love this and NN NS I think it needs to be kind of a balance it needs it needs to have. Bo. And and you know there's no reason why we should be ashamed of tears for. Reluctant to express grief.

Her ring cares dot com if you want more information and find all kinds of great details right there. And they keep listening is is ahead on on this a journey of planning out I'll be remembered at the end.
