The question of what occurs to the deceased after death is most often left to grieving family members with few resources. Though traditional North American funeral homes provide a valuable service, there are other options for those who would like a more personalized approach.
Have you considered what you would like to happen after your death? After the death of a loved one? Whether you would like a religious or secular ceremony, or any ceremony at all? Have you considered having your service at home?
The Gabriola Community Deathcare Collective (GCDC) was created to assist those who feel they would like a death plan outside of traditional funeral home services.
