June is Seniors Month. A time to honor and celebrate the lives and contributions of the generations of Canadians that took care of their families, communities and country. Yet for many seniors it can also be a lonely time.
The incredible wealth of knowledge and experience that seniors have is a treasure to capture. Spending time with a senior near you in the month of June can be an enormously rewarding experience for all of us.

What would you do if you were the one of the people in Fort McMurray who were told they have 10 minutes to pack and you have to leave now!
Shocking, horrific, incomprehensible, and overwhelming for the 80,000 + people who had to do exactly this this past week after forest fires destroyed their towns, homes and everything except what they could carry.
What would you decide take? Where do you even start?

I was asked this question three times this week; what happens to my prepaid funeral plan if I move? And each time I gave the answer: when people set up a prepaid funeral plan the money within the plan is always the purchaser’s money.

I can attest to the value of pre-planning. My Mom died a few weeks ago at home and thankfully we pre-planned everything with Kat just a week before. After she passed, one simple phone call was all that was needed. We were mentally and physically exhausted at that point. What a sense of peace for my Dad and our family.
We have everything pre-arranged for my Dad’s passing now too.
Thank you Kat for the important work you do.
Must say, my friend, how kind you were when I lost Jim….. you made a difference in my journey….. thanks for reaching out when I truly needed it! Thank you for organizing my funeral arrangements. I am now glad this is completed and now paid for, and my children know my wishes. It makes less worry for all of us…. Thank you for gently advising me, when life was dark and made no sense!

Kat is a delight. She has a good sense of humour and is informative. She provided good reading materials, is always available, approachable and was sensitive to our needs.

After attending Kat’s seminar, I came away with a much clearer picture of the importance of being properly prepared and capable of dealing with all of the legal issues surrounding the death of a loved one. I plan to share what I learned with my parents and siblings.
