All You Need to know

Joyce tells her story: I’ve always been the record keeper for our family. I am the one who tracks the family events for our family history, and I’m the one who pays the bills and makes sure everything and everyone is taken care of. Some people might say I “controlthe finances, but actually, my husband loves not having to be involved in it! Good thing he trusts me and my judgment!

I’m an organized person in my own mind, although you might not believe that if you saw my desk right now, and can generally find the paperwork I need in my filing system.I learned how important it was to be prepared at an early age. We were transferred every few years with my husband’s job, and I learned to keep good records as we bought and sold houses, connected and disconnected utilities, and found new doctors and schools. Some of the words that might describe me are organized, practical, and even cheap!

I’m all about simplifying and finding easier ways to do things, and that’s one reason I think I’ve found success with All They’ll Need to Know. It’s simple. You might think you can record your information without it, but I’d be willing to bet that it will prompt you to record things you haven’t even thought about!

Some of my friends think I spend too much time talking about death and dying! My first experience was at 27 when my father died suddenly. There had been no preparation made and if it hadn’t been for a kind uncle who had an extra lot, I don’t know what we would have done. We made up answers as we went along because we truly didn’t know what he wanted us to do.

Several years later, my grandmother died. I knew where she’d be buried because she and Grandpa had told us many times. She and Grandpa picked cemetery lots close to the road so they could hear the hum of the traffic. I come from a family that loves to travel. Some of them were salesmen, and in later years, just loved to see the country. Their choice of lots somehow made it something to smile about instead of feeling sad. I appreciate their wisdom in teaching me that death is just another part of life, and that we just need to accept it.

When Grandma started showing signs of shutting down, Grandpa knew exactly what to do because they had discussed it. “Make her comfortable, but don’t do anything to keep her alive.” It wasn’t a surprise to me. I already knew he was doing what Grandma wanted. That made it so much easier for my sister and me when Grandpa was dying. I told the doctors the same thing. “Make him comfortable, but don’t try to save him.” I was there when he passed away, and I knew he was proud of me for following his wishes. Because of my faith, I felt I had done more than just allow him to die. I had allowed him to be reunited with my grandmother.

When it came time to go to the funeral home, I took his simple black binder with all of his information. All we had to do was pay $500 to open the grave, and because he had added me as a signor on his checking account, we were able to take the funds from his account. At the time it would have been tough for us to come up with the money, so we appreciated the way Grandpa had taken care of everything. He made it as simple as he could and it was a great blessing to our family it because it allowed us to take that time to grieve.

Grandpa died in 1986, so I had lost three members of my family before I turned 40. I think going through those experiences helped me realize how important it is to be prepared, because I saw the difference in handling Grandpa’s services versus the chaos of my father’s.

I think of Terri Schaivo and the agony her family went through as they struggled to keep her alive. If only she had recorded a living will, the doctors would have known what to do, and the family wouldn’t have had to go to court to have that decision made.

I love the word “preparednessbecause it encompasses every area of life. To be successful in anything, it takes planning and preparation, whether you’re talking about packing for a trip or knowing ahead of time what you should look for in a marriage partner. You wouldn’t start to bake a cake without a recipe, so how could you expect your family to know what your final wishes are unless you’ve written them down? The shortest pencil is better than the longest memory! What’s written in pen or pencil can be left behind. You’ll take all those details and thoughts stored in your memory with you.

A written record is the only way your family will know for sure what you want. I tell my kids it’s the only way I get the last word!

Joyce and her husband moved to Houston TX in 1993. They are the parents of three and grandparents of nine of the cutest grandchildren you’ve ever seen! In 2010, Joyce reached a lifetime goal of publishing her first novel, Saving Nikki. It’s based on her life’s experiences as a teen/young adult, and shows how important it is to make the right choices. It took her 30 years to get it into print, and while Joyce jokes that taking so much time might make her sound a little “slow,” it really is a testimony of her conviction to keep working on it until it conveyed the right message. Read the first chapter online at www.savingnikki.com.

Joyce is currently working on a second novel that fits right in with the “choicestheme. This one is based on some of the events of her grandfather’s early life and the consequences he suffered when, in desperation, he lied to the woman he loved. He meant for it to bring her into his arms. Instead, he realized his mistake and ran from the lie, but oh, what a price he paid for it. You’ll have to read the book to see how it ends.
