Thinking Outside the Box W18

$11

with Charles Lakin

Calendar May 3, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

In this extremely informative class we’ll start by talking about the legal documents everyone should have in place, then cover planning ahead, writing things down, and having a conversation with the family about those plans. That will lead into a Q&A guided by your questions. We can talk about funeral options, home funerals, green cemeteries, alkaline hydrolysis, family burying grounds, scattering ashes, filling out the paperwork, whatever you want to know. We’ll share stories. I’ll bet that you’ll even laugh sometimes. Chuck Lakin is a woodworker and home funeral educator, whose interest in this topic came from his experience at his father’s death. He wanted to be a part of what happened after the death, but didn’t know what to do, and missed out. Now he knows and wants to share that information.
