This week begins “Conveying Our Wishes,” the second week of Caroline Yongue’s retreat on preparing for death. In this installment, Yongue enumerates a variety of options for near- and after-death care, and advises us to carefully consider these options. They include choices regarding hospice care, funerary preferences, and organ and tissue donation.

It is best to evaluate these choices now, with our loved ones in mind, and make a plan and act on it when we are still able. This is the best way to ensure that our loved ones will not be harmed or suffer unnecessary anguish when we pass.
