Hi, I’m Gail Rubin, The Doyenne of Death®, with today’s Mortality Minute.

Are you considering cremation? You’re not alone. The U.S. national cremation rate averages 42 percent and it’s climbing. The Cremation Association of North America predicts the national average will exceed 50 percent by 2017.

Does your family know if you want cremation? Now, some states allow cremation self-authorization, but you have to be alive to be able to do it yourself. Otherwise, your family must sign off on your cremation — but will each individual agree?

Avoid a family fight. It won’t kill you to let loved ones know what you want — or to preplan.

Remember, talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, talking about funerals won’t make you dead. Start a conversation today.
