If you are a frequent visitor to our blog, you know that we place a special importance on educating Philadelphians about the process of cremation and how it has become the choice of the majority of those preplanning their own end-of-life arrangements. While we are proud of the information we provide on our blog, we also want to highlight community events that serve to offer further insight into one of the most important decisions we can make in our lives.

On Tuesday of this week, there will be two events held at the Parsippany Main Public Library. The first of the two events is entitled “In Dying Order: Exploring Burial, Cremation, Funerals, and Other Options.” Leading the discussion for those in attendance will be a local funeral director who will frankly discuss the issues surrounding the formulation of our end-of-life planning. Attendees are urged to preregister for the event by calling (973) 887-5150, ext 209 or by signing up at www.parsippanylibrary.org.

The second of the two events, also on Tuesday, September 2, is an informal gathering that the library calls a “Death Café”. This event is intended to present a dialogue about the attendees personal thoughts on death and how we can make the most of the time we all have left. Like the above event, seating is limited. This means pre-registration for the event should be completed no later than today by utilizing the contact information provided above.

If a public forum is too indelicate a situation for you to discuss death, cremation, and preplanning your end-of-life arrangements, the compassionate professionals at the Philadelphia Cremation Society are more than willing to explain the many options available to you when formulating your end-of-life plan for yourself and your family. Take just a few moments to complete the form on this page or call us directly at (610) 851-4800 today!
