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. Should you have questions on anything you find here, please call us.
Organ & Tissue Donation
In practice, donations cannot be carried out without the consent of next-of-kin, but we believe advance discussion of donation with family members is just as important as signing a card.
Who You Should Call First
It really depends on how and where the death occurred. Where a death has been anticipated, call your attending physician.
How to Tell Family Members
When the death is unexpected, the news will surely have been a shock to you – so you need to expect that reaction in those you tell.
