“A Toast to Life, a Tribute to Angela Franklin: From Death Cafes to Life Cafes, a Family Transformed”
Remembering the fall of 2022, when grief clouded our world and navigating end-of-life felt like walking blindfolded. That’s when we met you, Angela Franklin, a beacon of guidance. Your “Death Workshop: Advance Care Planning”, planted seeds of understanding, introducing us to Death Cafes – not macabre gatherings, but safe spaces for open conversations about death and dying. These conversations were raw, vulnerable, and transformative. Your expertise as a caregiver, hospice volunteer, and community educator blossomed in our virtual Death Cafe, a refuge where we shared fears, sought advice, and empowered each other. But as we grew, our conversations evolved. After hosting 40 Death Cafes of our own, we felt a shift. While death remained a reality, we craved celebrating life and cherishing memories. So, with your support, we branched out, creating “Life Cafes.” For 30 beautiful gatherings, we’ve nurtured a garden of life. Stories bloom through pictures, videos, and laughter. Knowledge blossoms as we share experiences and support each other’s journeys. It’s a testament to your guidance, Angela, that even in the face of loss, we can cultivate joy and connection. Yet, life’s inevitable cycle reminds us that death will touch us again. When it does, we’ll return to the roots of your teachings, transforming back into a Death Cafe. It will be a space for healing, sharing the impact of loss, and brainstorming ways to honor our loved one’s memory. Angela, your gentle nudge, unwavering support, and vast knowledge have nurtured us on this journey. From Death Cafes to Life Cafes, and back again, you’ve helped us navigate the delicate dance of life and death with courage and compassion. For that, we are eternally grateful.
With hearts full of gratitude,
The Bennette Family
