Through my journey of researching and co-writing our book I've developed experience and advice worth sharing. I've also found information and resources from others that echo's my perspective on funerals and meaningful ways of remembrance. heartfeltmemorialservices.com
I was invited to be on the board of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Georgia and sister non-profit, The Memorial Society of Georgia.
The FCAGA.org site focuses on ideas, advice, resources and warnings when discussing, planning and coordinating the various purchases and experiences needed and appropriate for dealing with a loved one's body and remembering them in satisfying ways.
The MemorialSocietyofGeorgia.org site is about things to know and do when thinking about, discussing and arranging tasks to be done before death.
Also go to my Being Mortal website for additional valuable content. You'll find the link to watch the PBS Frontline documentary that follows the themes of the award winning, best seller, by Dr. Atul Gwande, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters Most in the End. You'll also find dozens of links to articles, videos and organizations about the importance of having meaningful discussions between the generations of your family. "What would you have me do with and for you and What would you do for and with me, if I didn't express my preferences if a terminal illness or tragedy happen in our family?" BeingMortal.weebly.com
I'm on the website and community education committees and I've included dozens of valuable articles and lists on the websites to help you have important conversations and more meaningful experiences.
If you are a part of an organization, company or congregation, in metro Atlanta, that would value a presentation, training or conversation about the topics on these sites, please contact me. Dave Savage 404 323-8686 firstname.lastname@example.org davesavage.com
