"You've listened long enough, now strike your note."
I'd been a magazine journalist for 35 years, then a blogger for Beliefnet when I came to see the beauty in funerals and end-of-life rituals. I went to mortuary school at age 54 and now own an eco-friendly full-service funeral firm in Brooklyn that specializes in green burials, home funerals, alternative services for mixed faith families, and memorable memorial events. I regularly lecture on the history of cremation and end-of-life planning.
