Aging, Death, Loss


Everybody dies. Yet many of us find it uncomfortable to think about or discuss the topics of aging and death, particularly with regards to our own death or that of someone close to us. Today much has been learned and written about death--the biology of death, the psychology, the customs and rituals associated with death in different cultures, legal aspects, religious aspects, and so forth.

This guide will help you find information on death and other topics related to it.  We hope you find it useful.
