Ensuring loved ones' wishes are honoured when they die, a guide

From Afternoons, 1:25 pm on 7 September 2022

A key part of grieving when a loved one dies is planning the send off they would have wanted, but beyond writing a will, many people don't take time to jot down the ways they'd like to be celebrated.

Papamoa resident Anna Mellalieu realised this after she lost her Dad to melanoma at 57.

So, to help others plan the best send off possible, she's created a book called 'My Will Wishes', where a person can specify things that are important to them after they pass. Anna talks to Jesse about her guide.
