||"Your End of Life Matters is offered at a time when people are starting to talk more about end-of-life matters. Based on [the author's] own experiences and those of others she's worked with, the book conveys the value of talking about last wishes long before the end is imminent. With the primary emphasis on how to create a successful end-of-life communication of your own, this book weaves stories, writing prompts, humor, and exercises into chapters that include answers to key questions, including those about Legacy Documents and other issues that might arise when planning for those final days"--Page 4 of cover.
