Including planning for how you want your life to be celebrated upon your death is increasingly included in end of life discussions. "The emphasis today is on celebration and making it personal," says Pete Gunderson, the 3rd generation of Gundersons who has served the expanding Greater Madison community. Pete and his staff at six locations work closely with individuals in their own personal planning and with the families who carry out the wishes while experiencing their own grief.
"After death bereavement is a huge issue," states Kathleen Ford Roberts who works with the Gunderson Care Team in helping people through the process.
