"We prepare for all type of occasions especially bringing a new life into the world and end of life should not be any different. End of life preparations, in my opinion, is one of the most loving acts given to your loved ones. This is a time to be able to celebrate the life lived and grieve the loss in knowing in the physical they will be missed. When the preparations are made their loved ones don't have the financial burden with grieving process. Death is guaranteed and it's best to be prepared for it." — La Vonta Ray
