Four people attended this Death Cafe.One person hadn't been before. The topics we discussed were wide ranging from cot death, death during pregnacy, the Euthenasia Law, prefered method of disposition of remains, writting ones biography for one's children after death  and so on. I find that when the group is small people talk more intimately and describe their personal experiences more.
