Have you ever been at a funeral, turned to the person sitting with you and said, "I never want you to do this to me. When the time comes, remember I'd like ..." Well, this is a book to collect those thoughts so you can put them down and forget about them -- knowing they are expressed for the right people to see and act on at the appropriate time.

Everybody's going to die. Nobody gets out alive. Death is the one thing you can absolutely count on. Why then are people so reluctant to plan for it?

Full of humorous and poignant funeral stories and first-person accounts, Grave Expectations - Planning "The End" Like There's No Tomorrow , like the perennially popular wedding planners that line the shelves of every bookstore, is the ultimate handbook, packed with creative suggestions for realizing one's final wishes. This is a book that gives people permission to memorialize their lives on their own terms and in their own ways. This is a lively book about preparing for death; it's not a book to be afraid of. Who knew arranging a funeral could be fun?
