Link to Love and Lost leaflet Talking about love, loss and death
 
Friends and meetings are encouraged to have conversations about dying and death. The leaflet may help with this. Friends who attended the recent Quaker Life Representative Council spent the whole weekend on this topic and found it a deeply spiritual occasion. Your area meeting representative may be able to help your meeting to begin the conversation.
