Thinking
Questions:
 This month we study “Maman Bridgette: Honoring our Bones/Death”

Reflect on these questions:

What words do you use for death?  Why?

Have you ever heard doctors or other professionals avoid saying death/dead/die/dying? What impression did that make on you?

What can you remember of your first experience of death? Share the experience with us.

If you are willing to think about your own death, what comes to mind? Do you have your papers organized in the vent of your death?

What would you like to be remembered for?

What do you believe happens after we die? What were you taught as a child? Have your beliefs changed? What have you taught your own children about death?

Does your family have any particular rituals or practices when someone dies?
