Wonderfile

Plan now, die later, and do a lot of living in-between

The Wonderfile provides a central place to store all necessary paperwork, and answers questions about what needs to be done to maintain control at the end-of-life and what plans need to be made.

Besides providing a convenient way to store these important documents, the Wonderfile can be a way to begin the discussion of advance planning with family and friends who need to know your wishes.
