Organ Donation..

We were given the opportunity to donate Wayne’s organs.
His organs successfully changed the lives of at least seven other people.
Next week in National Organ Donor week please consider donating your organs to save others.
It is an honour to remember the love you may have for someone who also gave this gift.

Creating Meaningful Funeral Experiences by Alan D. Wolfelt Ph.D.

IAN’S BOOK REVIEW #6
‘CREATING MEANINGFUL FUNERAL EXPERIENCES’
A Guide for Caregivers by Alan D. Wolfelt Ph.D.
Written in response to the current trend to deritualise death and funeral ceremonies, this book explores the ways in which caregivers and clergy can create heartfelt ceremonies that help the bereaved begin to heal.
Explaining the purposes behind rituals, it reviews the many ways these have changed over the years and argues for a return to authentic, personalised, and meaningful funeral ceremonies.
The qualities in caregivers that make them effective funeral planners are examined, and practical ideas for creating authentic, personalised, and meaningful funeral ceremonies are provided.
Trends toward the prevalence of cremation are discussed, as are trends away from viewing and spending time with the body of the deceased. Rated 41/2 stars.
