Funerals may be as old as mankind, but they are continually evolving to meet the needs and demands of a changing world. Join Amy Cunningham, funeral director and death educator, to explore everything from home funeral options to simple cremation services to “green” burials. The most modern and recent technologies will also be presented. She will provide her insights and answer common questions like, “What if my deceased partner/spouse is of a different faith tradition or cultural background?”, “How much direction can I give to celebrants and clergy or to friends and family?”, “Is it possible to host my own funeral before I go?” In the course of this friendly hour, you’ll get a glimpse of what a funeral can be – and you’ll leave with comforting ideas and inspiration for yourself or someone you love.
