About this Death Cafe

Hi! I'm Karen, and I have started hosting Death Cafes due to my own need to understand our role in death and culture, especially in the western world and even more so, especially how we handle this subject in the United States. The death of my father brought questions about what else I could have known and done regarding his care, and since that time, I've been focusing on helping others talk about what they need to in reference to death and dying.
