Amidst the many uncertainties in life, death is something that nobody can escape. As the saying goes, “Where there’s life, there’s death.” In this day and age, death is no longer a taboo topic. Morbid as it may seem, these days, people make plans for their eventual death to ease the responsibility for their loved ones after they are gone.
