My life changed when both my mother and my sister passed away in the space of two years. Neither of them had let any of the family know what they would like to happen in the event of their deaths. Making difficult decisions on their behalf at an emotional time was really tough. My aim in founding the company was to make things easier for other people dealing with the loss of a loved one. There was so much to sort out, and so much information that was hard to find.
