Making an Exit: From the Magnificent to the Macabre - How We Dignify the Dead

Join host and Portland area funeral director Elizabeth Fournier as she talks with Sarah Murray, author of Making an Exit: From the Magnificent to the Macabre---How We Dignify the Dead. Writer and journalist Sarah Murray never gave much thought of what might ultimately happen to her remains, but her curiosity of death disposition choices and why we choose these choices began when her father was facing his end of life. She went on a journey to search out different ways of dealing with grief and how they are expressed.

Sarah Murray's Making an Exit: From the Magnificent to the Macabre - How We Dignify the Dead, is exploration of the extraordinary creativity observed in death rituals, and the author's accounts of these journeys are poignant and personal.
