To our Clients and Friends:
Please join us for the next presentation in our Smart Counsel Series on Thursday, February 23, 2023, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. virtually via Zoom, hosted by Attorney Maria Baler.
Bob Folsom of Folsom Funeral Services with locations in Dedham, Westwood and Norwood, will be here to discuss everything you wanted to know about funeral arrangements but were afraid to ask! Should you pre-arrange or pre-pay for your funeral and how? What happens when a person dies at home or in the hospital? What choices do families need to make after someone has died if no pre-arrangements are made? How are the Directives you leave taken into account when funeral arrangements are made? And what are Green Burials all about? Bob will give us an overview of green burial options, explain a “modified” green burial, and will discuss the availability of green burials locally and further afield.
We will also be joined by Liz Sandeman, who has been volunteering with New England Donor Services for 8 years, ever since her sister died waiting for a lung transplant. Last year she was awarded the National Donate Life America Ambassador Service Award. She is a frequent speaker at local senior centers, driving schools, community organizations, high schools, hospitals, health fairs, road races and community events. She is the current co-chair of the Massachusetts Lions Organ Donor Awareness program.
Attorney Baler will discuss how we incorporate our clients’ wishes about funeral arrangements and organ donation into the legal documents we prepare for them.
Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions of all speakers.
