How, where, when and with who?  Do you really have control over the moment of death?  Maybe not, but if you are blessed with time, you can know a few things that may help in the moments that are the most precious. 

When hit with a life changing event, do we really have our heart and soul at peace?  Will our loved ones be cared for?  And, how will my wishes play out when I cannot speak?

My guests today are Dr. Monica Williams-Murphy, MD and Kristian Murphy.  They are the authors of 'It's OK to Die'.  Dr. Monica is an ER physician and has shared her experiences along with suggestions for a better plan should you be allowed time before a life event happens.  Kristian has developed the website and added chapters in the book based on his experience.

This is a hard topic for many, it is one which we all wish to deny, and one that many times, is left untouched until there is great pain and suffering which may direct the care from there on out. 

Please, take a few moments, listen to the show, live or in archives, visit the website of Dr. Williams-Murphy, and share the link of the show with your friends.  A little piece of thoughtfulness prior and a few plans ahead of times, may ease the confusion at a time when prayers and consoling are more important.
