Senior Living Seminar Series Returns

Today, we're going to talk about a slightly depressing, and very scary, topic: funerals.  OK, so we know people don't like discussing them, but everyone has one, eventually.  It is important to plan as much of your own as you can so your family isn't left with the whole job after you're gone.  But, where to begin?

The Maud Marks Library wants to help.  Join us this Friday, June 16 at 3 PM for our next seminar in our Senior Living series, Demystifying the Funeral Planning Process.  Learn how to plan a funeral for yourself or a loved one without all the stress and worry. Come discover what kind of life is best for you or your loved one.
