I'm looking for the advice, particularly from older people with kids?My parents have always been very clear about what they want done in the event of their death.

My mother wants to be buried in her hometown where the majority of her family is buried.Now, they don't have a family plot or anything, and she's never taken steps to secure this like my grandmother did.

All good things are wild and free.

“Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.”

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
--Mark Twain

“I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
--Jimmy Dean

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”
