About Mark (Atlanta, GA):

I currently work as a hospice chaplain and have 15 years experience in healthcare chaplaincy.


What brings you to Death Cafe?

I have always found in my work as a chaplain that death and dying makes things real.  Too many people fail to realize this until death approaches. I would like to help people come to terms with their mortality early enough in their life so that they might thereby live their life more fully and more authentically. Death Cafe is a good venue for this.


What would you like your legacy to be?

That I loved and was loved.


Thoughts for sharing:

Death is a moment.

Death Cafe write up: Death Cafe Atlanta

Posted by Mark (Atlanta, GA) on Aug. 25, 2013, 7:53 p.m.


It was a beautiful day to be in Oakland Cemetery: blue sky and a warm day with just a slight touch of fall in the air.  Thirty people showed up to participate in Atlanta’s 5th Death Café ranging in age from five months to 91.  The spread of food included fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, vegetable tray, finger sandwiches, various teas and coffees, and of course a delicious cake with the Death Café Atlanta logo on it. Discussing death simply goes better with cake and a cuppa.  Thanks to Crossroads Hospice Charitable Foundation for the grant that underwrites Death Café Atlanta!

 

Topics varied significantly from table ...
