Don’t plan to die? Bad news – humans have a 100% mortality rate. Yet only 30% of us make end-of-life plans, such as wills or trusts, advance medical directives and pre-need funeral planning. That leaves 70% of our families unprepared and devastated not if, but when, a death occurs. Listen to Gail Rubin on why we avoid the topic of death and how to improve end-of-life planning rates so everyone can have a Good Goodbye.
