Comedy films that make us laugh can also help us relax into having funeral planning conversations with our loved ones. From cult classics like The Big Lebowski to true stories like Bernie and Get Low, the magic of Hollywood can put the “fun” in funeral arrangements, BEFORE there’s a death in the family.

On A Good Goodbye Radio on Wednesday, April 23 at 6:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m. PT, she will talk about how specific films help address particular issues:
- Carpet Kingdom on how to ensure you get the Viking funeral you want
- Death at a Funeral on the different ways people can pay for funerals
