The Beauty of Death in Nature

January 29, 2017

This past Friday evening's documentary on green burials (A Will for the Woods) was received by viewers with such comments as "How absolutely beautiful", "So touching, real and natural".  One individual  who had spoken beforehand about the "creepiness" of typical funeral viewings, spoke after the video about how natural it seemed to have a viewing in the home of someone who hadn't been embalmed. Another viewer's comment centered around the importance of green burials for the environment. The group as a whole spoke of how touching it was to see the person dying involved in the planning of his funeral and bringing together friends, family and community in carrying out his wishes for a home funeral and "green" burial. Information on two local nature preserves providing green burials was dispersed and discussed. Truly an exceptional evening...
