This is one of the BEST things to come from FCA! Talk about a practical, meaningful way to offer actual HELP to those you care about, this is it!! Actions speak louder than words, and this is an easy way to help all those who will be at a loss when we pass on.

Hi Barbara,

I'm sorry about that. I can't contact you to make it right unless you email me directly so I have your email address. This is a public comment section, not a private email. Please contact me at and I'll be sure you get your Before I Go.

Please remove the idea of a stocking stuffer. That's horrible. The book however seems to be a great tool.

Actually, we really do think it's a good stocking stuffer. Our biggest difficulty as Americans is treating death like a controversial, shameful topic. Or treating it as if the suggestion of funeral planning meant that we want our loved ones to hurry up and die.

Part of changing that, and part of helping people get the end of life that they want and can afford, is some gentle pushback against the idea that there's something not nice or socially unacceptable about treating it candidly.

And yes, even light-heartedly as a stocking stuffer.

Which, of course, you are most welcome not to do if it's not to your personal taste.
