When You’re Not There

For Juneau locals, our publication, When You’re Not There, is also available at Hearthside Books.

By Virginia Palmer

This simple 40-page book provides guidance with estate planning, what to do when there is a death in the family, how to cope with grief, and more. It offers advice on where to get help when a family member is dying. The book is not just about death, but about preparing for loss. Each book comes with two journals for recording important information that is lost or difficult to obtain after someone dies. Having this information in one place, safely recorded can remove some of the stress and agony from losing a loved one.
