Dying Well

It has truly been my pleasure to assist a few people facing death with grace and dignity in putting their affairs in order. Even more pleasurable are those cherished circumstances where those left behind are able to experience closure if not greater closeness. "A good death regardless of the circumstances, means putting medical care in its proper perspective, and not allowing it to dominate." Unfortunately, many people don't die well and fail to take advantage of help that is available including counseling or pyschotherapy for the dying and their family.

Post Halloween Mortem

It was a good halloween.

This year we had the most grotesque pumpkins in the neighborhood-seven of them. And, we had eight trick or treaters (including the parental units). This was double last year's numbers. Our house might be a little too scary and we are far, far away from other houses. Remember the economic theory that two hot dog stands on the beach do better next to each other than at the opposite ends of the beach?

This morning I gave up my Twitter account. I could never really get the hang of it. Sorry to those of you who actually tried to follow. I really do like Facebook the best of all the social media outlets.

A surprise for me-I really enjoy drafting testamentary pet trusts and I've got the dog hairs all over my black pants to prove it too!
