They must think that I need to start planning my funeral?
January 22, 2014
If you're an older baby-boomer has the nature of your junk mail changed? It has for me. A few years ago, I started getting mail from hearing aid dealers, regular offers from AARP and various retirement homes.
Today, I got a shout-up in the mail from a local funeral home trying to get my business when I pass over to the next life. They want me to be ready. The mail included a sales letter along with their contact information.
As a 67-year-old old baby-boomer, do I see the need to have a funeral director and funeral arrangements in my life? No. I'm in reasonably good health and I have items left to do on my "to-do" list. However, I realize that life's direction can turn on a dime and I need to be aware.
That junk mail today from one of the local undertakers, did that. It made me more aware.
