I want to thank you both for making this (Advance Care Planning) happen for me. The experience really helped me think through some of my wishes. It gave me some specifics to talk about with my children so that they will understand me and my needs better. They will be surprised that I would like to be in residential hospice if that is necessary. I feel more at peace about the future, even though I probably will never wrap my mind around not “being!”

Quote from member of audience of I'm Dying to Talk with You - "I just realized my patient advocate died 5 years ago!"  Just one more reason why one should periodically check Advance Directives.  
                                                                                 — Dave K with Amazing Circles

"The Facilitator’s expertise and kind demeanor made this process simple and effective. It also provided a sense of comfort to know that these questions have been addressed and the answers documented."
                                                                                 — B D

"Making an Advance Directive is the responsible thing for an adult to do. Do this when you are healthy and can make your wishes known. An Advance Directive is a gift to the survivors. It's the last gift you can give them."
                                                                                 — C V
