About this Death Cafe
Want to be able to talk about death and dying without anxiety, guilt, shame, or whatever-it-is that usually silences people on this topic? Come and have some cake and coffee or tea with us. We have a lively interest in death! Our death cafes usually include a fair amount of laughter, as well as a willingness to discuss important questions we all -- of course! -- have about mortality.
About Sandy, Virginia, Julie and Tom
Sandy Stork, M.C., during her career as a Geriatric Mental Health Specialist, worked with elders as they entered the last chapters of their lives and learned from many that in their acceptance of their own mortality and their desire to talk about their feelings, especially with their families, they found that the subject of death was taboo. In 2013 she started the Death Café of Whatcom County to offer an opportunity to all ages to openly and safely share with others their thoughts and feelings on end of life and death. Virginia Herrick, a writer whose stories touch on themes of loss, grief, and resilience, joined the leadership committee soon after. They're both longtime Whatcom County residents. Julie Galstad and Tom McCarthy are more recent volunteers.
