Planning for death

The 2015 spring issue of the on-line FrontBurnerMama Magazine, dedicated to helping moms find balance in their busy lives, has hit the internet - and the theme this spring is "Hope".

"One of the newest and simplest services is The LastingMatters Organizer, a planner aiming to be the hub of instruction for loved ones after death" writes Life Matters Media in a recent article about Barbara Bates Sedoric and her company LastingMatters.

Life Matters Media recently added The LastingMatters Organizer as a Palliative and Hospice Care / End-of-life Planning Resource on its website.

Pax World Management “Investing in Women” March 2015 newsletter recommends The LastingMatters Organizer in the “Practice Management Tip” section- “a great tool for advisors to use with clients, helping to organize their personal intentions”.
