About Jo Gordon:

I am a funeral director in High River, Alberta.  

What brings you to Death Cafe?

A desire to foster a positive message regarding death and dying.

What would you like your legacy to be?

That I am a positive influence in the lives of the families I work with.

Thoughts for sharing:

Serving both those who are dying and their family is an honor and a priviledge.  I recognize there is a need to create a more open and positive thought on death and dying in today's society.

Death Cafe write up: Death Cafe - High River

Our Death Cafe was attended by 18 people!  Our local paper reported on the event and indeed it has sparked further interest in Death Cafe. 

Comments from attendees included very positive feedback, a desire to attend future cafes, and the venue and food were awesome!  Our sponsors, Snodgrass Funeral Home, who donated the coffee, tea and amazing treats made by Colossi's Coffee House, who provided us with a cozy place to gather.

Thank you to all participants and sponsors for making High River's first Death Cafe a great success!

We will definitely hold another Death Cafe soon!
