Dee Oliver should know a little bit about the business of death. When she married her husband, Johnnie, she married into four generations of a family of funeral directors going all the way back to the Civil War. It was only natural that she would become a part of the family business, too. Despite years of helping other folks plan for their final wishes, it was Johnnie’s untimely and unexpected death in 2007 that brought reality square in the face for Dee...

With a keen sense of humor and a breezy style, Oliver writes candidly about her experiences, especially the stumbling blocks she might have avoided by planning ahead. The result is an engaging, entertaining and practical “how to” about the one thing in life that is absolutely certain.
