Excellent Resource. I have many books and materials related to home funerals but this one is now top of the list. It's all here. Everything you need to know, consider, plan, and prepare for. Get a copy, read through it, and then keep it nearby. It has everything you need to carry out a beautiful, intimate, and community affirming home funeral. Thank you to all the contributors. Well done!
We were able to peacefully care for Grandma's body following death - in large part because we had this guide.
We felt empowered by your guide and loved the emphasis on tapping into our community support systems. The bodycare at home section was so practical and our total favorite part! It helped us get prepared in advance with materials we might need at the time of death - from Techni Ice to dimensions for a simple homemade shroud. The tips on how to keep Grandma's mouth and eyelids closed were simple - with photos and clear instructions.
So grateful for all the care and time that went into creating this awesome resource!
