Knowing what to expect in this situation can be a weight off your shoulders when you’re facing a loved one’s death. When you’re at the bedside of a family member or close friend who is dying, it can be difficult to know what to do. Is this something you’ll have to face with an elderly or very ill loved one? If you want to know more about preparing for the death of a loved one, then listen to this episode of Forever in their Hearts, where host Erik Reynolds interviews Valerie Martell, Director of Operations for Martin Brothers Funeral Services about this topic.
