Friday October 25th   I am Not Ready Yet, But When I am: Funeral Planning 101
If a death occurred to someone I love, would I know what to do? This is a tough question to answer but one that we may face today. If you are 50+, please Join Mark McKenzie from Squamish Funeral Chapel at 12pm on Friday October 25th at The Rec. He will go over key steps to be aware of when planning ahead or making funeral arrangements.

 He will go over items such as:
· Who has the legal right to make funeral arrangements,
· The costs of funerals/celebrations of life,
· The difference between cremation and burial,
· If one can die at home, the death benefits applicable after death,
· Grief support on the North Shore,
· & many other items that can help you plan ahead.
Mark's goal is to educate families on their choices and to better help you and your family make the right decisions. No registration required.
