About Rebecca Lacey:

I am delighted to have the opportunity to bring Death Cafe conversations to Monmouth and the surrounding area. I have found conversations about death and dying to be so positive and helpful since I first became part of this movement.  I am an ex-NHS senior manager and a newly-qualified counsellor,  now living with my husband in English Bicknor in the Forest of Dean having moved in from London. 

Feel free to join us for tea and cake in Bridges Centre in Monmouth, where we are made so welcome

 


What brings you to Death Cafe?

I have been aware over the years of the way in which we avoid conversations or awareness of death. When both my parents died, and when my sister died last year, I found these events were momentous and important.  Being aware of my own mortality and bringing this awareness to my every day life helps me to feel alive!  I have found Death Cafe conversations to be comforting, supportive, and entirely life affirming!  


What would you like your legacy to be?

To have lived well and fully

To have expressed and shared my love for those around me

 


Thoughts for sharing:

Understanding that our time is limited can bring a joy to knowing that we are alive today.

Death is not the opposite of life, but part of it

The most painful goodbyes are the ones that are never said and never explained
