“Having a plan, your estate in order, powers of attorney, a will, a funeral plan, having all these things, they don’t make things happen. The question just becomes: Do you die with a plan or do you die without a plan? And as grownups, we should be taking care of our own mess. We shouldn’t be dumping that on other people… Quite honestly, death is the only thing that we know is gonna happen, so let’s just get it taken care of.” – Jamie Sarche
