Message from CEO and President Anthony S. Falco:

“Death”. Not many words elicit more emotions and thoughts. In recognition of October 31 and our custom of celebrating, observing and participating in Halloween I have decided to talk about death. As an aside how did I associate Halloween and death? Do I believe death is spooky and scary? Am I one of the many that are “afraid to death of talking about death”, do I look at death as the end or the beginning of something else? (Full disclosure, I personally try to avoid the word death and the many negative connotations of the word. I prefer the word “pass” as in left this realm and passed to a much better and eternal place). 

In this month’s newsletter we included spiritual ways to talk and or think about death (see, “Learning to live by talking about death”) and practical ways (See www.dyingmatters.org, “Talking about death and dying”) and an article by estate planning attorney Anastashia Kamberidis “Post mortem: when you need an attorney and when you do not” as well as an article by Joseph Reardon Keohane Funeral Home “Pre-planning: Avoid the Rush”. Although death and taxes are the only certainties in life, I really wanted to add an article for those searching for the fountain of youth and either will not die or will at least try to delay it. I turned to my holistic health mentor Dr. Ann Doggett of Wholebody Solutions to give an overview of proven ways to improve our immune system, fend off disease and generally live a healthy and happy life.

Lastly as it is October 31, I must acknowledge that today is my lovely wife Suzanne Falco’s birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Clearly at our home, Halloween is about birth not death!
