New Wisconsin law allows final wishes to be honored

Wisconsin residents will now have the right to appoint a person to carry out their final wishes. In the past, a consensus of a deceased person's next of kin was required to determine choices such as cremation, burial, viewing and services, even if it was despite the wishes of the decedent. Cress Funeral service is offering free seminars to help people to appoint a person to make decisions their final disposition. Seminars will feature explanation of new law and form, and help in completing and notarizing the form. Help with the new form is also available at all Cress Funeral Homes, call 608-238-3434 for appointments. Follow the link to view the new form and the new statutes.
