An elderly woman writing

Begin by writing out how you would want to live the last days of your life. Where would you like to be? Who would you like to be with you? What ceremonies or rituals would you like performed? What services or celebrations would you like held in honor of your life? (Personally, I want the party before I go and then a great roast at my funeral...which had better be good or I'll be back!)
