‘I’m happy to support this campaign because dying is part of everyday life, and the more we talk about it the less scary it gets; and I’ve made a will because then my loved ones will have one less thing to think about when I’ve gone.’ Ian McMillan @IMcMillan
Don’t leave it unsaid; tell your loved ones your wishes; get the ‘Big Conversation’ started. It may be hard but worth it. As part of Dying Matters Awareness Week in Leeds Ian McMillan, poet, journalist, playwright and broadcaster, was commissioned to write a poem to raise awareness.
Various events are taking place throughout Leeds to help people get involved with the Big Conversation.
There’s certainly a lot to get involved with – why don’t you let us know what you did and what plans you’ve put in place, tell us your story.
