 Self-Care: How to Plan Your Own Funeral  

"What happens if we move?" I asked our local memorial society. The answer: Memorial societies maintain reciprocal relationships, so you can take your plan along when you change residences. Funeral directors cooperate in similar fashion.

If in a rational and mature way you can bring yourself to think about this part of life we call dying, and can go ahead and make the ultimately necessary arrangements, I think you will feel a real sense of relief—and not a little pride.

NOTE: More detailed information on funeral planning, as well as the name of the memorial society nearest you, is available from the Continental Association of Funeral and Memorial Societies, 1828 L St., N. W., Washington DC 20036, via its free brochure or the 64 page booklet, "A Manual of Death Education and Simple Burial" (cost: $1.50). Another useful source of information is the National Funeral Directors Association's series of seven free pamphlets. Address: 135 West Wells St., Milwaukee, WI 53202. For information about veterans' benefits, write to the Veterans Administration, Information Services (064), Washington DC 20420, and ask for #VA IS-1 Fact Sheet. For information about Social Security benefits, call or write to the Social Security office nearest you.
