Presentation on Memorials on August 9th

butterfliesMEMORIALS – Unpacking the Mysteries and the Management

There was an old TV series called Naked City —the following line was spoken at the end of each show: “there are 8 million stories in the naked city, this has been one of them”.

On August 9th, 2016, from 3 to 5 pm, Claudia Johnson will share some of the stories of Memorials she has officiated over the last 40 years. Stories of Services and rituals for the dead and for those left behind.

AND in the process of storytelling she’ll as you questions about what you—yes, YOU—might want for your service.
Come prepared to answer this question: What music would you want played? Or What poem read?

Simple questions like this will allow us to engage with our deaths-our own Service as well as address the legacy we will leave for the living.
Feel free to write to Claudia prior to the gathering at
