What? A good Death? "What is good about death?" you may ask. In my previous Death page I list links on all sort of issues, history, mythology, spiritual and so on in regard to Death and Dying. In the Transhumanism-AI page I delve a bit into those who wish to prolong life. This page is not so esoteric. This is a page about the steps one should endeavor to take to make your death orderly and less stressful for yourself and the ones you love. Practical things that are required by culture and law at the end of life and after. Some links are Idaho specific as that is where I live but info for your own home is easily found.
Thanks to my best friend M. for inspiring this page.
