A Visit to the Death Cafe

Katheryn Houghton was flipping through the Daily Interlake when she noticed an ad for a group offering tea and cookies, which she’s into, along with frank discussion about death and dying. She and her roommate at the time, Nicky Ouellet, went and met Nancy Reece Jones, who started the Death Cafe in Montana’s Flathead Valley. It’s part of a worldwide movement to create a space where people can talk over their fears, their anger, their questions — anything at all — around the inevitable end. Houghton and Ouellet co-report this story about talking to the living about death.
