Dead Good Days Family friendly events, workshops and talks that will inform, intrigue and equip us all, to better deal with Death, Dying and Loss. ​ Death does happen to everyone - our family, colleagues, friends, teachers & of course, ourselves. It is not talked about much, unless it is actually happening, and then, not always. What do you say to someone who is dying? Who should apply for Power of Attorney? How do you find meaning in your life now? What can make anything better when a friend has just died? Allowing people to tell their story is healing.
