Invoking the names of loved ones
Our dinner began with learning that half of the 10 participants did not do the homework in advance of the dinner. As we began by invoking the names of loved ones who had died, the mood turned from wariness to feeling the love as we shared memories. Ultimately we ended up having really wonderful conversations and learned that some of our family already had purchased cremation insurance. ‘
Everyone was glad we had the dinner and came away with things to do to ensure each of our wishes are outlined and shared for our wishes in the event of a catastrophic illness or injury and in death. Glad we did it. Thanks for providing a structure.
