Notice of Funeral - Before Death

KarenLavinia
My mom doesn't want a funeral.

None-the-less, I've been thinking about it. She's touched many lives. I'm sure a lot would attend. Mom moved from assisted living to living with me a year ago. In that time, a rumor went around her church that she'd died. The church secretary called me to get the story straight. Kind of amusing, I thought.

But then - I wonder. Why am I waiting for her to die to hear people's stories? Wouldn't they rather spend time with her now? She's on Hospice; her days numbered. Tell me. Is this a crazy thought? What if I call the church and tell them to put a notice in the church bulletin or newsletter? Something like this;

Friends of B.Z.
B., a longtime member of XYZ church is 90 now and living with her daughter, Karen.
She joyfully invites friends to visit her there.
Karen can be reached at 123-4567
