This is Sammy (mid 40’s).
Sammy does not want to deal with any End of Life issues either for himself or his parents who live outside Detroit. He’s going to leave the administrative hassle to his siblings back home.He would love to just pay to have someone take care of any necessary details when his folks pass on. As far as his estate, once he’s gone, that’s someone else’s problem.
And here’s my friend L.
She agrees with Sammy (though we interviewed them separately). L is willing to pay almost any price to completely avoid dealing with the details once her parents pass on. She actually phrased it that way ‘I would pay almost anything to not have to deal with that kind of stuff. I just want to live in denial as much as possible.’
