ST. CLOUD – None of us know how long our lives will be, so it’s important to plan for the end before it’s too late.

This is the message from a newly created local organization, “Light the Legacy,” dedicated to helping people and their loved ones figure out how they want to handle their end-of-life care.

To spread awareness, the organization will be hosting a pair of roundtable discussions at the Pioneer Place on Fifth Theatre in conjunction with the play “Tuesdays with Morrie,” a drama centered on the last days of a dying man.

Lynn MacKenzie is Light the Legacy’s project coordinator. She says taking the time to figure out end-of-life wishes allows people to die with dignity while spending quality time with those they love.

MacKenzie cites the nationally-known Terry Schiavo case as one example of how a lack of understanding our loved ones’ wishes can tear families apart.

The panel is open to the public following Thursday’s 7:30 p.m. showing of “Tuesdays with Morrie,” as well as the Sunday matinee at 2:00 p.m.

The panel free and open to all, and tickets for the companion show can be purchased on Pioneer Place on Fifth’s website.
