21 July 2020 5.30 p.m. – 7.30 p.m.
This was our first in person Death Cafe following the COVID-19 lockdown. Given that people were still cautious about gathering in restaurants, there was a good attendance - about nine people. There was cultural diversity within the group and a Chinese person, and two South Americans spoke about their cultural experiences. One of the South Americans described how difficult it was being on the other side of the world when her mother’s health was declining. One participant worked at a funeral home as an embalmer and people found her insights into the workings of a funeral home fascinating.
