This article about creating a deathbed music playlist appeared in the New York Times this Sunday. With a number of discussions and resources on our site pointing to materials about having productive end-of-life discussions, we thought you might find this helpful as well.

  1. For once it seems I am ahead of the curve. I put a memorial service playlist on Spotify about two years ago, containing a wide variety of choral pieces I have sung and enjoyed for many years. However, there is no reason why such a medley could not be played while I am facing my final days here on Earth. My son thought th whole idea somewhat morbid, but my daughter (the death doula) was perfectly happy about it.
