"When my dear friend of nearly 50 years died in January 2017, her body was not instantly whisked away to a hospital morgue as my mother’s had been. Instead, it was transported to the home of another dear friend under the care and direction of Sharon and Denise of Love’s Last Breath. There, her body was lovingly washed and anointed by them and by us, her friends and family members. We took leave of her slowly, kindly and deliberately.


Sharon and Denise supported us with the practical knowledge and the guidance that we needed. More than that, they created an atmosphere in which each of us could feel the spiritual significance of our loved one’s passing. The following day, her body was transported to a funeral home for cremation.


I feel I had a chance to say a good ‘good-bye’ to my beloved friend, and I will always be grateful to Sharon and Denise for this.

"I was  blessed to hold a home vigil for a very dear friend. Family, close friends, our death doulas, gathered  together  to celebrate my friend; her life , her spirit. We sang together, told stories, laughed and wept together. It was a gentle and spacious time.  And , such a gift to be present with this  great Mystery,  and to say our farewells  in such an intimate and loving way.

We gathered together for 24 hours,  some of us slept here, some of us went home and then came back the next day. Our death doulas supported us in  every way,  part of the loving circle that held all of us and my friend. They also took care of the practicalities that allowed this home vigil to happen safely and easily.
