Suddenly and unexpectedly Robyn O'Connell was faced with the heartbreak of losing a baby from SIDS. The last thing she ever thought her young family would have to face was planning and paying for a funeral. Her church came to their rescue and paid for it for them. Young families, financially, have little extra funds when a crisis hits. 40 years later, Robyn started a charity in her daughter's name - the Rebecca Jane Foundation, which contributes to (and often fully pays for) the funerals of babies when their parents cannot afford to do so.
Robyn, a funeral director, started her business "Your Wishes Funeral Advocacy" to help support the charity. She helps people plan ahead for the funeral that they want. This episode is filled with important messages that we all need to consider.
