This is beautiful Julie and... speaking from experience, it will help so much if they know what you are doing. Mum always used to joke with us that she wanted the Last Post played at her funeral. We all used to laugh but when she got ill and it was obvious what was happening - she reminded us and even had an LP of it for us to play. She even told us down to where she was to have her ashes put (with her own Mum) and that she wanted a wicker casket rather than a coffin. She'd even been saving for years . Her fuh fuh savings as she called it (funeral fund)again we used to laugh and say she was morbid. It did help though, knowing we were doing what she wanted. I want to do something like this for the girls but like you say, it's not something you want to think about. Your journal is stunning.

This was so touching. And I applaud you for doing it. When my mother passed, we found her wishes right at the front of her filing cabinet. She made it VERY clear exactly what she wanted and we were able to fulfill her wishes. No trying to make decisions about what she MIGHT have wanted - we knew. It was a beautiful family only gathering that brought us all a degree of closure, knowing we were doing her wishes. Now I need to get my own done! Thank you for sharing this very personal experience.

Like Michelle, I am stunned - you are *so* on a roll!! I am pleased you're a survivor, and now an organised one at that. Good on you. Thanks to the Crusades, my whole family has their final wishes safely stored and it's a good feeling to know it is done.

Wow Julie. We've learned so much about you in these paragraphs. Firstly, bravo for bravely beating *C*. Secondly, *high five* for getting the Final Wishes done - such a gift to your family, completed with clarity and thoughtfulness, and hopefully not necessary for a very long time. Thirdly, YOU are on a roll. Three crusades in a row!! Great way to wrap up '08 and begin '09, working in your journal. Love the pages, especially the tipped in envelope. Thanks for sharing your work, and your story, with the team. Happy New Year!
