Life after death: Americans are embracing new ways to leave their remains
What do you want to happen to your remains after you die?
For the past century, most Americans have accepted a limited set of options without question. And discussions of death and funeral plans have been taboo.
That is changing. As a scholar of funeral and cemetery law, I’ve discovered that Americans are becoming more willing to have a conversation about their own mortality and what comes next and embrace new funeral and burial practices.
If you’re a homeowner in Santa Cruz County your home is probably worth from $500k to $1 million. Your home should be titled into a trust to avoid probate, the slow legal process that allows the court to distribute your assets, while the attorney handling your probate collects from 5% to 10% of its gross value, draining your heir’s inheritance.
I can help in preparation of a living Trust Package that protects the privacy of your estate, while retaining control of distribution to your beneficiaries.

Setting the mind free to live more fully
Stepping into my new service with the intent to assist, prepare and sort out end-of-life planning details for others is offering me unexpected lessons. My world is expanding with new perspectives, compassion and vulnerability in the way we think and talk about death. I’ve learned that we dread the concept of death because we don’t know much about it. For most of us death is to be avoided at all costs. But death, the ultimate teacher, is coming out of the dark. The #1 NY Times bestseller right now is Atul Gawande’s, Being Mortal, a reflection on death, dying and the medical profession’s mishandling of it. Once we surrender the fear associated with death, it allows us to accept the body in its natural decline, setting the mind free to live more fully.
