Writeup Crete, IL Death Cafe
We expected about a dozen people to come to this Death Cafe but had a number of cancellations due to illness.
Six people came 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 arrived later and discussed the effects of radiation on the body and how certain types of radiation caused death..
We served snacks, chicken and noodles, cake and various libations. I received evaluations from all attendees. All said they would be happy to attend a future Death Cafe. One suggested a followup Advanced Directives Party. A handout denoting multiple options for disposal of body was well received.
