One of the joys of doing in-depth research for the book I'm writing on Dying, Death and Grief is discovering so many remarkable and compassionate people working in the death-positive movement and those who create beautiful and heartfelt poetry, songs, paintings and all manner of support groups.
I have a collection of numerous songs that bring solace and often cleansing tears when remembering those I have loved and lost.
