According to Benjamin Franklin, there are only two things certain in life: death and taxes. Well, there’s lots of information out there about taxes – how to file them, how to save on them, how to spend your return…even special kinds of taxes – home taxes, income taxes, etc. So what’s my point? What about death? We know it is a certainty, but most people don’t want to talk about it. We don’t talk about how we want to spend our last days, what the room should be like, the smells, the sounds, the people around us. Not everyone has this luxury. But when we do, and yes, I just said luxury, why don’t we talk about it?
With that in mind, I invite you to join us next Thursday night for a listening session with the founders of Compassion House for Living and Dying. They will share their vision of creating a community of compassionate care that will provide the physical, emotional, and spiritual support necessary at the end of life to ensure all community members have a meaningful, dignified death and that no one dies alone.
Join us. Seating is limited please RSVP today.
