Isle of Man - Dying Matters Awareness Week

Recently I came across this article on Dying Matters Awareness Week on the Isle of Man. Apparently reluctance to make end-of-life decisions in not purely an American trait. I was particularly struck by one quote:
Kirstie Turner added, “One quote that that always remains with me and which I say time and again is from Dame Cicely Saunders – ‘How people die remains in the memory of those who live on’.
If you live in Wisconsin, you can put your wishes for death on paper by completing:
  1. Power of Attorney for Health Care;
  2. Declaration to Physicians; and
  3. Authorization for Final Disposition.
