Joliet, Illinois Death Cafe Write Up
We expected about twenty people to come to this Death Cafe but had a number of cancellations due to the incredibly rainy weather and threats of storms.
About twelve people showed up to discuss death topics such as loss of a loved one and what types of funeral or cremation ceremony might suit each person the best. End of Life conversations, having taken place or not, were discussed and how it affected each participant.
One guest came in at the last minute and she shared some good stories from the past about death.
Our hosts served snack food and cake. I only received a couple of evaluations as folks promised to send them but did not. I will try to avoid that in the future. All said they would be happy to either attend or host another Death Cafe with my assistance facilitating the conversation.
