The Family Plot: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don't Plan to Die is my WordPress blog that I started in August to provide the information, inspiration and tools to plan and implement creative, meaningful and memorable end-of-life rituals for people and pets. With gentle humor, I dish on the latest developments in death care along with vital information about funeral arrangements that most people don’t learn about until faced with a death in the family.

I hope you'll check it out! http://thefamilyplot.wordpress.com/

I am so interested in the end of life. I have been with both of my folks through their passage. Recently my sister-in-law's mother died. We were all there at the hospital. After she took her last breath with us standing around the bed, we all got ourselves a chocolate turtle, "clinked" them over her bed to toast her & sang For She's a Jolly Good Fellow.

I love to hear about creative end-of-life rituals! What was the significance of chocolate turtles?
