MORRIS – Matthew R. Baskerville – funeral director at Reeves Funeral Home in Morris, Coal City and Gardner, and Baskerville Funeral Home in Wilmington – is proud to announce participation in Have the Talk of a Lifetime, a national effort sponsored by the Funeral and Memorial Information Council. 

The event encourages families to have conversations about life and what matters most, helping families make important decisions about how they wish to remember and honor the lives of their loved ones, according to the news release fro Baskerville.

“By taking time to reflect on the unique life of a loved one and remember the difference they made, families and friends take an important step in the journey toward healing after death,” Baskerville said in the news release.

Baskerville is offering individuals and families a free informative brochure “Have the Talk of a Lifetime” that will help them begin a conversation about life. 

“It’s not easy to talk about death,” Baskerville said in the news release. “This information will be particularly helpful because it focuses on life, rather than the details of a service.”
