A Message to My Loved Ones.
   I have prepared this booklet in order to relieve you of some of the burdens I know you will face at the time of my death. I have recorded my desires on a variety of items pertaining to my funeral and final arrangements.
  By making these decisions in advance, I hope I have lifted some of the burdens off your shoulders, so that you can reflect on the warm memories of the time we had together.
