It was a dark and stormy night - the kind where no self respecting Rhode Islander travels ten feet without bread and milk. Seven brave souls braved the elements to come out for the first Providence Death Cafe, including one from the far away land of Worcester, MA. They entered into a brightly lit chamber echoing with the eerie, slightly creepy, and very ironic sounds of the Laughing Yoga group that was just finishing up. They sat down to talk death and eat cake. The cake scored a 10 out of 10 on a scale that only offered 1 through 5. The fruit disappeared like magic. Conversations ranged from ...

Our first rappahannock county Death Cafe' was well recieved by our rural community. 17 folks came and participated in an engaging format. There are only 6-7 thousand people in our whole county, so I was pleased to have so much turn out. Everyone expressed gratitude at having a forum to discuss this important subject. One participant stated that her only concern was that we had to wait another whole month to get together again! Valuable feedback was recieved from the participants for our future gatherings. We ate delicious cake, drank herbal tea and left looking forward to our next event.

Thanks to the 45 engaged people who turned up to participate actively in the Death Cafe! The room was buzzing with conversations. We talked in small groups about end-of-life choices, hospice care, our own fears about dying, our experiences being with family/friends who have died and much more. A worthwhile evening -- and the promised cakes were amazing! We plan to offer more Death Cafes on the South Shore -- keep your eyes open for notices.
