Get the planner that's designed to help your family as they cope with your passing and carry out your final wishes.
Hi! My name is Dionne and I am the organizer behind the blog, Home Made Our Way. I am a mom to twin teenage boys and wife to a sailor.
I created this planner to help families overwhelmed with grief and the responsibilities of making funeral arrangements.
Unfortunately, coming from a large family, I have been to dozens of wakes and funerals to understand some of the tasks that need to be done by those that are left behind.
When my dad was tasked to take care of a few of my family member's arrangements, he would express his frustration with finding necessary documents, frustration with other family members who wanted a say in arrangements but made no offer to help, and frustration with having to hold in his grief and "keep it together."
Sadly, he died too and as the oldest, I was now tasked to take care of his arrangements. And while my dad was much more prepared for his death than the family members he had to take care of, his documents were disorganized and there was a lot of time spent trying to locate items, contact information, account numbers, etc.
I was lucky in that there were no arguments over my dad's arrangements. But this was not so during the recent death of another family member. I witnessed the aftermath of not having one's wishes written down. Family members were upset with certain arrangements and others felt that they should have been in charge.
And this is where the After I Am Gone Planner comes in. I created this planner from personal experience and feedback from those who have had to handle their loved one's last wishes.
This planner is for you AND your family. It is especially recommended for you if:
Does the planner come in a hard copy?
Unfortunately, not at this time. This is a downloadable PDF.
When can I expect to receive it?
You should receive it automatically within a minute after your purchase. You will receive an email with a link to "view your product." If you haven't received it after five minutes, please check your spam/junk folder. If you still haven't received it, please contact me at dionnem@homemadeourway. com and I will resend the link.
What is your return policy?
Because this is a digital product, refunds will not be issued if you have downloaded the product. If our product server shows that you have not downloaded the product, a refund will be issued immediately upon request.
I've downloaded the planner but can't seem to open it. How do I open my file?
The planner comes in a zipped file. With most computers, you simply click on the zippered icon of the file and it will open up into files that you can access. If this doesn't work, right-click the icon and choose 'extract' from the menu to open it.
Can I take this to a printer and have them make me a bound copy?
Absolutely, this book is for your personal use and you have my permission to have it copied. However, go through the planner first to see if you actually need every single page. There may be areas that are irrelevant to your situation. You may also want to make extra copies of certain pages. You can also save money by printing it in black/white and with back to back pages.
This planner is very feminine, do you have something for men?
For a neutral look, print the planner using the black/white option. This will create a gray-colored look.
What if I have other questions regarding this planer?
