I couldn't agree more. The Terri Schiavo case brought the issue of advance directives to the attention of the public, but many months later, the issue has faded.

The Five Wishes form is one easy way to record one's choices, and it is inexpensive. Whether one uses such a form or consults an attorney, it is never too soon to put these wishes in writing.
