After the funeral is over, how do we begin memorializing the precious memories of a loved one? While traditional acts – such as published obituaries, grave markers, scrap books, and stories at the dinner table – are important and relevant, there are new and exciting ways emerging on how to preserve a person’s life, wisdom, and cherished values.

 

Join death educator Amy Cunningham for a discussion about capturing the true legacy of a loved one. Over the past several years, she has worked with hundreds of families to ensure that the rituals around memorializing feel true and right for each family. Learn about creating unique keepsakes, whether it is the form of textiles, artwork, charitable donations, or readings. She will also explore how digital platforms can provide an ideal space for sharing stories and memories that are easily accessible. Discover what might feel right for your family.

 

Free to attend, RSVP recommended. Please register using the Eventbrite box below.

 

This program takes place in our Modern Chapel just to the right after passing through the Gothic Arches at the main entrance.
