More About Living with Death: Panelists Present Choices. November 11

A panel of experts on law, medicine, and memorials will discuss “Do I have a choice in how I live or die?”on Monday November 11th eve, sponsored by the Humanists and Freethinkers of Fairfield County as part of its month-long theme of “Carpe Diem (Seize the Day) – Living with Death”

Death the only certainty of life. According to the Centers for Disease Control six out of 10 of us – including people important to us– will live with the cause of death years before we die. How do we make sure we are prepared? How do we ease the pain of ourselves and our loved ones? How do we live with confidence and maintain community? How do we deal with loss?

Norwalk-based attorney Stephen B. Keough will cover “Protecting yourself and your wishes.”

Dr. Donna Colletti will address “Maintaining dignity as we face our mortality,” with a focus on palliative and hospice care, which she has provided and managed in Greenwich.

Rebecca Lautenslager, a funeral director at Shaughnessey-Banks in Fairfield, will discuss planning for the inevitable and “Re-imagining the memorial.”

The discussion will be moderated by two HFFC members: Anita Peters, a Humanist Funeral Celebrant, and Sandi Sacks, a recently-retired LCSW, with extensive experience working with seniors and leading bereavement groups.

Other events will be Fri Nov 1: Day of the Dead, and Monday Nov 18: Death Café. See meetup.com/hffcct for details.

The meeting, Monday November 11 (6 pm social hour; 7 pm program), at the Silver Star Diner in Norwalk, is free and open to all. RSVP is recommended by email to hffc@optimum.net (subject: Nov 11) or at click for details
