Two Alexandrians, Donald Young and Bernard Nolan, have compiled a workbook and forum on the organization of one’s thoughts, wishes, plans, and affairs in a way that best helps those left behind. The two men offer a forum, free of charge, to churches, institutions and organizations on the matter. The forum consists of a presentation, question and answer period and discussion. Copies of the workbook “If I Should Die Before I Wake” are available at the forum and the Christ Church gift shop at 118 N. Columbus Street on the grounds of historic Christ Church. To arrange a forum, contact Nolan by the e-mail Quietbird01@me.com with name and a brief description of the organization.
