Listen to Chaplain Kate Braestrup
While all the adults in Nina’s life, including Braestrup, were unsure about how to proceed, the chaplain says that in her experience, “people are far, far more likely to regret not having seen the body [of a deceased loved one] than they are to wish they hadn’t done it.”
“You can trust a human being with grief,”
Braestrup tells us. We know what to do.
The When You Die team is committed to bringing death back into our everyday conversations as an integral part of our human journey.
