Autumn 2011 Events

If you missed Twin Cities Public Television’s excellent 26-minute documentary “End-of-life Choices:Through History,” you can view it at http://www.honoringchoices.org/documentaries/3-end-of-life-choices-through-history/.

The section about the Minnesota Threshold Network begins with the narrator saying, “In the Twin Cities, one group is working to educate the public about a broad set of options available for end-of-lilfe planning, including home-based funerals, steeped in the traditions of the past.”

Under the main box, you can click on the photo of MTN member Heather Halen for a five-minute  description of her husband’s home funeral. This clip includes more of her interview than is featured in the television program, which will be rebroadcast in January.
