Madeline Christie of Daisy Deathcare is back and we’re going to talk about pushing up the daisies together.

Many people have a fear of dying. They don’t want to talk about it, think about it, or even plan for their death, because it makes them uncomfortable. I’ve witnessed firsthand how this discomfort causes family and friends to put off financial planning, preparing a will, or even requesting help when they need it. And whenever I witness this, I think it must be the cruelest thing we can do to ourselves, and to those we leave behind. None of us would want to be remembered badly, but rather that our time here be celebrated affectionately. There are so many things we should consider now, so that when we do kick the bucket, breathe our last and get called home, it’s the kind of exit everyone wants.
