Expectations of Loved Ones!

The Expectations from Loved Ones! –in the event of death.


This can be overwhelming! Siblings of an adult mom or dad have very different approaches to death of their family member. All bring a different set of concerns about the illness or passing of their loved one. Questions of the health concerns of their loved one are paramount, if they were very sick and hospitalized. Will they or could they possess this same health issue? Much of this medical info could be kept safe in the if-i-croak®, the things you should know Life Organizational Planner. Then here are all the questions of who is left with what special item that is being passed on through the loved ones wishes. That material item that means so much can cause division and angst among family members. With our “Life Organizational Planner, if-i-croak®, the things you should know,” all this can be detailed and outlined. What items should be given to whom and even why this seems to be important. The main reason this outline for the loved one is important is to simplify the steps and keep all the important papers and information at your fingertips.   That antique piece of furniture that mom wanted her daughter to have and in the event of death, has a special place for her to outline in our if-i-croak®, Life Planner. That special piece of jewelry that Dad wanted his son or grandson to have in the event of his passing away could become a fight of want, amongst family. Without this in writing and outlined even a vehicle, that a grand child may have worked on with grandpa becomes a piece of property for siblings and family members could bring about hostility. The responsibility for the executer of a will is responsible to carry out the wishes of your loved one. Ultimately, this is our immediate responsibility to begin by keeping all the important papers and desires of the loved one in one safe place. The Life Organizational Planner, does just that. It even has a place for passwords, extra keys and photos to be saved. The easiest way to provide your family this information and provide contacts of friends and family could be stored in the Planner. The importance of the Planner is to simplify the process at such a difficult time of losing a loved one to death. Our hope is that everyone has this to stay organized while living but also in the event of death. Death is a part of life and this will really simplify the process. Leaving behind no question of the desires of your loved ones.


Radio!Are you ready for this special event? Talk about if-i-croak®

I have been interviewed for radio advertising for our If-I-Croak®, The Things You Should Know, Life Organizational Planner. The interviewer from 97.1 and affiliates with 600 stations throughout the United States asked me some serious and fun questions.

Is it important to contact the people the deceased person knows? If-I-Croak® Planner has a place for this information, and yes usually people they are close to would be reached by cell phone or a close family member would handle this step although since most people are not writing things down anymore in an address book this book of information would contain your wishes. This person would of course be someone the deceased person trusts and could carry out your contact wishes.

The interviewer asked, what the comments have been to our product I explained, the name makes some people laugh and the frog insignia is a way to keep things light and that was my idea to get families and my spouse to talk about our wishes “while living” so that they understand loved ones wishes while living. I explained how that 2/3 of the If-I-Croak® Planner is for recording information for repairs in home, insurance, passports and information for living. It keeps all your important documents, for easy access.

We talked about how our If-I-Croak® Planner that is so simple to use with compartments for valuable information. He did ask if they were other products similar. I explained that what makes ours stand out is that it is simple to use. It even has a place for special memory photos for program of service at later time of for passing on to loved ones. The If-I-Croak® Life Organizational Planner. even has a place for extra keys for home or apartment living.

We talked about how over 55% do not have a plan or a Will, a very important step.
It even has a place for banking information and passwords. When a one loved one knows where this is in your home all your information is protected.
The If-I-Croak® Life Organizational Planner, does fit in a safe or private place in your home, making it easy to update for preparation in the event of death but providing the loved ones wishes, for at home care also. As a nurse I experienced so many people so unprepared. This process is never easy in the event of death but at least with If-I-Croak® Planner all of these steps are ready and organized for easy access.

We talked about how he never saw anything like our Planner and thought it really was a new and unique product. That the frog also makes it a fun approach. Our video on our website includes the frog, a very light-hearted approach but necessary. My hope for everyone is to be prepared while living. This was a great opportunity.

Meaningful Life Organization

Meaningful Life Organization

The meaning of organization is the arrangement or order to things… an important part of living. While this is a process that affects all our lives and the type of organization will reflect the value we place on our property, personal belongings, more importantly what we leave for our loved ones.

I love to reflect on this quote. ”There are two great days in a person’s life, the day we are born and the day we discover why?” The “why” becomes increasingly important as we grow older in our age, however this question is applied to many of our personal decisions. What we are doing for our lives passion, we call work. I have heard some amazing and touching stories of loss of life, through my work first as a nurse. I recently, had a client who purchased our Life Organizational Planner, If-i-croak®,  the things you should know. After her friend saw this planner, she purchased it as well. It helped her friend to stay organized while living and she was able to outline and provide her wishes in the event of death, a planning device or guide, but this life planner became an important tool for her to reference household repair direction, insurance, her will, her personal wishes at the time of death, also her passwords and vital information for banking and where she kept valuable information about her health, doctors of choice, and Living Will, that protects your rights. She needed this at her finger- tips and now her family has access to this vital information, to get her affairs in order. The financial checklist is so important to leave for loved ones. I recently received a nightmare call from my youngest son,  that my oldest son, suddenly, no real apparent illness, had passed away. The shock of this leaves you numb. He made verbal wishes to us, but if he was prepared with this easy and concise organizational planner, my younger son would know exactly what he wanted instead he is trying with our families help to proceed with his final arrangements. The pain of losing a loved one is hard in itself but the knowledge of what he would want while living is what we are left to figure out. Not an easy task. We heard him talking about death arrangements but he was not married and did not plan for death or death arrangements, he was just 44. I have so many fond memories of his life and know that we did our best to honor his life, while he was alive. The planning with the celebration of his life was very evident of this. I am so proud of his life accomplishments but to me it was just too short. But this is not my plan, and it is in Gods hands. We will see him one day that is for sure. Our faith in Christ promises that plan. Acceptance of this loss is a gradual and a roller coaster of events. My wish for all people is to have their “if-i-croak®,the things you should know,  Life Organizational Planner “ ready and organized while living. Your estate planning is a small part with significance while living and to outline by putting your affairs in order. Getting this information gives your loved ones peace of mind. This Life Organizational Planner is not only a plan in the event of death. I appreciate and value the wonderful design our creator has placed in our lives. We often take for granted the time we have while living here, on earth. The beautiful and wonderful things around us can become invisible to us, however there is so much beauty around us, the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds, especially those we love, all while living life to the fullest.
