New video: Home vigil honors a mother’s last wish

Here’s a moving 3 1/2-minute video from Minnesota Public Radio about a woman who was horrified by her mother’s request for a home vigil. With support from Minnesota Threshold Network members Linda Bergh and Marianne Dietzel, Georgia carried out her mother’s last wish and in the process, realized how beautiful and natural a home vigil with an unembalmed body can be for the family and friends. http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2012/10/16/news/green-funerals/?refid=0&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+MPR_NewsFeatures+%28News+%26+Features+from+Minnesota+Public+Radio%29&utm_content=Google+Feedfetcher
