  • Are You Responsible for a Loved One?

Info, almost 100% of the time they will say something like, “ Oh how I wished I had something like this to give to my Mother to fill out before they died.

  • The Florist's Mistake
    On opening his new store, a man received a bouquet of flowers. He became dismayed on reading the enclosed card, that it expressed "Deepest Sympathy". 
     While puzzling over the message, his telephone rang. It was the florist, apologizing for having sent the wrong card. 
     "Oh, it's alright." said the storekeeper. "I'm a businessman and I understand how these things can happen." 
     "But," added the florist, "I accidentally sent your card to a funeral party." 
     "Well, what did it say?" ask the storekeeper. "

  • CLOSE OUT on 1st Edition!

    My book, Dying To Know. Info attracted a great deal of attention and sales, however we found that some people felt the title to be disrespectful about the subject of death. We also felt that it was important that everyone have the opportunity to view the contents of this book, and we didn’t want them to be “turned off” because of the title. Therefore, we created another book titled Your Estate Planning Guide. This has the same forms and Legal Documents as my original book, but the cover has been changed. Instead of:

    “A Comprehensive Guide to Kicking The Bucket”

    , the new cover shows a family making,

    “A Toast To Putting Your Affairs in Order”.

    For complete information regarding the contents of the book please visit our website at:


    Thank you.

    We have about 30 of the original covered books

  • Things To Consider
    A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool. 
    After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.
    The waitress asked kindly, "Crushed nuts?"
    "No," he replied. "Arthritis."

    2. Facebook memorial page: When a Facebook member dies, his/her page remains. A memorial page allows for its removal and informs the world of the death.

  • Way of Burial
    Bob, aged 92, and Mary, aged 89, were excited about their decision to get married. While out for a stroll to discuss the wedding, they passed a drug store. Bob suggested they go in.
    Bob asked to speak to the pharmacist. He explained they’re about to get married, and asked, "Do you sell heart medication?" 
    "Of course we do," the pharmacist replied. "Medicine for rheumatism?" "Definitely," he said. How about Viagra? 
    "Of course.", "Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, jaundice?", "Yes, the works”,"What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antacids?" "Absolutely.","Do you sell wheelchairs and walkers?"All speeds and sizes." 
    ,"Good," Bob said to the pharmacist. "We’d like to register for our wedding gifts here, please."
