Nearly 30 people attended the Springfield Masonic Community (SMC) Lunch and Learn. The topic made some people stop and take a look at their own lives. No one likes to think about planning a funeral, but death is part of the cycle of life.
The afternoon started with a catered Mexican buffet that everyone enjoyed. The guest speaker, April Haskins, a Prearrangement Specialist delivered the presentation and provided everyone with a packet of information to help them make educated decisions. She covered many topics such as how advance funeral planning can help protect your loved ones. Her topics were designed to give family members peace of mind during the hardest days of their lives.
April brought a comfort level to the room. There was no wrong question, and even some moments of laughter. Her intelligence as well as her kindness let the guests walk away with their questions answered and a feeling of comfort.
