If you think that this is a morbid class to be avoided at all cost, you’re wrong.  My purpose is to give you the information you need to make good decisions about what happens to your body after your death and to answer any questions you may have about those choices.  You’ll be surprised at how many choices you have.  A recent attendee called the class “riveting.”  Come see for yourself; you’ll even laugh sometimes.  Take a look at to see what you’ll learn.
