Let's Talk About Death

Holidays are the time when families and friends gather together for food and conversation, but some of the most important topics like end-of-life care are the most difficult to discuss.

A recent study shows that 90 percent of Americans say it’s important to talk about end-of-life care, but only 30 percent actually do.
