There's a saying, "talking about death won't kill you" but then why does the topic make so many people uncomfortable? Likely it is because of the inevitability of it. Death is something none of us can escape, and something that most of us cannot predict. It's an unknown certainty - a thing we cannot control. But there are certain things we can do to "control" death while we're still alive. And although it may be uncomfortable at first, having a plan of action regarding death and dying may make you feel more at ease with the subject.
