Next of Kin Guide

Because we do not know the time of our death, it is important that we clarify our thoughts and wishes and write these down in the form of a testament. This end of life guide provides spiritual prayers and services that can be done at the time of death.  It also includes a checklist for your end-of-life wishes. Download: Next of Kin Guide (PDF)
