    "Lee conveys the importance of end of life planning with humor and wisdom. Together our community group was able to thoughtfully explore these decisions we tend to avoid. The sense of relief many of us felt at the end of the day was palpable. What a gift for our friends and families as we take the burden of hard decisions off their shoulders by ensuring our wishes are known ahead of time! So grateful."
