When Marjory Kenny went on a skiing holiday with her partner, the last thing she thought she\u2019d be doing was cutting her holiday short to organise a funeral.\n\nWe never know when tragedy will strike and taking some steps to prepare for whenever the time comes, can not only provide peace of mind but can also go a great way to helping your loved ones.\n\nHaving to rake through her partner\u2019s son\u2019s personal life was a very traumatic and upsetting task for his family members. As Marjory describes:\n\n\n\nThey had very little understanding of Andrew\u2019s final wishes and never knew if Andrew would like to provide any gifts to charity. At 28 years old it wasn\u2019t something he was likely to talk about with his family.\n\nA step further\u2026.\n\nEnd of life planning is something we should all take seriously.
