Death and Dying

Video duration: 27:10Video has closed captioning.

An uplifting meditation on death and dying with stories that prepares us for the journey. An embalmer in Toledo, Ohio prepares a deceased person with the precision and attention of an artist; a teenage hospice volunteer shares advice from his patients; a dying Brooklyn woman prepares for her final journey with dignity, grace and a dinner party; and observations from an urban Memphis philosopher.
