The Moments Before & After Death

Hugh Elliott wrote, "Death can sneak up on you like a silent kitten, surprising you with it's touch and you have a right to act surprised. Other times death stomps in the front door, unwanted and unannounced, and makes it's noisy way to your seat on the sofa."

Honestly, the experience is different for everyone, as is the way we face the very possibility of our death. We can discover great lessons for those in our lives who are faced with terminal illness, such as humility, acceptance, and the power of compassion to heal old emotional scars. We can also find value in posthumously caring for others, through organ and tissue donation. This section has both practical and insightful reading materials, including valuable information on who to call first, and how to share the sad news with family and friends. Should you have questions on anything you find here, please call us.

Organ & Tissue Donation
Are you or a loved one considering organ donation? Our list of common questions will help in making that decision. We also invite you to speak with our knowledgeable staff.
Who You Should Call First
No one is fully prepared for the death of a loved one. Even when anticipated due to illness, when the moment comes, who should you call? Our guidelines will help.
How to Tell Family Members
