Death and dying are natural parts of life, and yet many of us are uncomfortable discussing them with our loved ones. Gerontologist and hospice volunteer, Loretta Downs, a nationally recognized speaker and writer, uses humor and personal stories to present this delicate subject in positive terms. She will teach you how to talk about death with your loved ones, the ways in which you can prepare, how to be present for a loved one living the end of his or her life, and where to find gratitude. Ms. Downs is a storyteller with extraordinary experiences that suffuse her lively presentation with love, compassion, hope and wisdom.
