Umbrella Academy Program-DeWitt Henricks: “The Sayonara Kit: a Celebration of Life”

April 3 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

When someone dies, especially if it’s unforeseen, family members often have to scramble to arrange the funeral service and other details in a short time.  It can be a Herculean task during a time of extreme grief.  Wouldn’t it be a huge relief to the family to know that the deceased had already prepared a plan for saying good-bye?!  But how do you plan for a funeral in advance?  Could it be similar to the Advance Directive for end-of–life medical care?  DeWitt Henricks, former journalist, distinguished Toastmaster, and retired Binghamton University’s Graduate School of Management professor, recommends that we plan our funeral now so that our families will know what we want.  He calls it “The Sayonara Kit (the Japanese word for “good bye”): A Celebration of Life.”
