The fifth annual “Final Gift” workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 27, in the Friendship Hall at Union UCC Church in Hackensack, co-sponsored by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.

Participants will assemble a notebook with their written instructions and wishes regarding their own death, which will be available to their families at a time when decision-making can be a burden in a time of grief.
