Speaking of Death

Death is a part of life -- and deserves to be discussed. Gilchrist bereavement specialist Debbie Jones suggests ways to acknowledge grief and tells us about “The Day of Healing and Remembering -- Honoring Our Losses.” It’s a community event where art therapist Sharon Strouse will prepare activities to acknowledge the loss of loved ones.

Then, we meet Maryland State Anatomy Board anatomical services specialist Dan Hensley. He talks about why people choose to donate their bodies to medical research and how their contributions are honored at a state memorial service.
