Thank you, Jon. Can't believe the first Death Cafe I hosted was in the low 2000s and here we are over 3000 worldwide later... Eight open-hearted folks arrived at the library. All but one were regulars (or have been to at least one Death Cafe).
One friend (yes, they seem to become friends), was unable to make it and wrote that his dad had left/gone/died last week. He was grateful for all the wisdom he had gathered around death at the Death Cafes, which he said made it all the easier.
Levity in the death and dying process.
So much joy in the cycle of it all to be remembered.
