Why I love being the Death Cafe Los Angeles hostess

I am thrilled to be a part of this beautiful Death Cafe movement started by Jon Underwood in England. I feel like a part of my life is coming full circle. Hospice was brought to the US from England in 1974 and the first hospice in the US is in my hometown, Branford, Connecticut. My grandfather was mayor of Branford at that time and he fought to have Connecticut Hospice in our town. As a child I went to these hospice meetings and I saw it come to life. As the Death Cafe LA hostess, I love that I am continuing on the path that my grandfather started almost 40 years ago.

I love Los Angeles. In 1994, I learned this city as a hospice social worker. I drove all over LA and I helped people of most every culture, class, race, religion and spirituality die peacefully. I was welcomed into homes of complete strangers and they offered me the food and drinks of their culture. I learned about neighborhoods many people never knew existed.  I was honored to learn this City of Angels by helping the dying and their families. I want to give back to the people and the city that taught me so much about life, love and death. This is why I am holding Death Cafes all over LA. I want to reconnect with the people and neighborhoods that I love. And the food, I can't forget the food.
