abstract
In the years 2011, 2012, and 2013, I was met with the loss of several important people in my life. The loss of my loved ones made me reflect about death and dying multiple times. More specifically, I reflected on how our society and local communities approach conversations about the end of life. I became increasingly concerned about the discomfort associated with death. Due to this, I became very interested in recognizing our mortality and using advance care planning to achieve a "good death" if possible.
