The January 2020 Death Frontier Conversation Space   led by Martin Stewart

“He never talked about death.”

“Why didn’t she tell us what she wanted in her funeral service?”

Have you ever heard statements like that?

One day, could either of them be said about you?

I invite you to come along to a January series of discussions I am leading on Death, Dying and our Funerals.  It will be as gentle and interactive as the participants want it to be.

We will start with morning tea at 10am on the Wednesdays of 8, 15 & 22 January in The Common at Bryndwr, and finish around 11.45am. Please feel welcome!  Maybe you have a friend you could invite!
