You have a will. You have planned your estate. Maybe, you have even planned your funeral. But there are many decisions that have to be made in the hours before and after the end of your life. Will your family members have the information that they need to make decisions efficiently and comfortably?

“Something I Can Do for the Ones I Love” is a free public presentation from Purdue Extension that covers simple steps that you can take to assist your loved ones during this stressful time. It will be presented two times on Monday, Oct. 1. Join Gracie Marlatt, Health & Human Sciences educator with Purdue Extension in Rush County at Noon in the Assembly Room of the Ruth County Courthouse, or join her at 7 p.m. in the Rush County Fair Office at 1299 N. Sexton Street.

This discussion will be valuable for adults of all ages. Marlatt will give specific action steps that can be taken that are inexpensive and do not require outside assistance. These steps are especially valuable for those whose family members do not live nearby. This is not a topic that is easy for some to discuss. How can you share the information with family members? Join Marlatt in this special conversation. For more information, call 932-5974 or email
