About Paige Lewis:

I work in end-of-life care, and volunteer doing bereavement phone calls for a hospice center.  I have enjoyed starting the Seattle and East Side of Lake Washington chapters of Death Cafe.


What brings you to Death Cafe?

I want to discuss death and dying with others similarly inclined.  It surprises me how few people have end-of-life talks with their loved ones.  I guess I want to raise the awareness a bit.


What would you like your legacy to be?

Listen and learn.


Thoughts for sharing:

"Always go to the funeral."

I read this eecently:

...my father died a quiet death from cancer.  His funeral was on a Wednesday, middle of the workweek.

I had been numb for days, when for some reason, during the funeral, I turned and looked back at the folks in the church. The memory of it still takes my breath away. Thue most human, powerful and humbling thing I have ever seen was a church at three o'clock on a Wednesday full of inconvenienced people who believe in going to a funeral."

Practitioners question: DC location at funeral home

Posted by Paige Lewis on Aug. 23, 2015, 11:56 a.m.


I would like to ask those who have held groups at a funeral home or cemetery, how did that work for you?

 

I would ideally work with an untraditional funeral home.  However, a traditional funeral home would also be educational for my group.
