Jesus said: “I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.”  John 14:3

In the first days following a loved one’s death, the family makes an average of 200 decisions. During such an emotional, stressful and demanding time, plans that have been made earlier lighten the load after death. If you’ve not made advance plans, this series will be helpful to you as you make arrangements for end of life care, services and burial of your loved one. 

No Registration Needed.
