In Her Own Words…

This is your personal journey, and one only you can travel. However, this journey is a bit easier when you know you’re not alone. You no longer have to put on a good face and pretend you’re okay.

From the heart…

“Congratulations on an incredibly successful lecture. Our group was very inspired by your lecture. I thought people might shy away from the topic but happily I was wrong. I was delighted to see so many turn out for this. You had their full attention. I know I came home with so many things to think about. You opened many doors. Your lecture was brilliant. First of all you were straight forward - let's not be afraid of the word death or the idea of it. You enriched what you had to say with beautiful quotes from others. And you brought us many suggestions of what to read to continue to explore the subject. I liked how you got everyone to participate. Great job, Bonnie, and thank you.”

- Sally Kimball President, Seabrook Island Village

“Your presentation was so meaningful and surely engaged the hearts and minds of the participants. Many seeds were planted, just as you had planned! Making the topic of end-of-life and death less fearful and more accessible is no small feat, and yet that is what you achieved in your recent address to our group. Your masterful presentation was a combination of compelling insights enhanced by the hands-on personal reflection, and a gentle dose of humor. You surely engaged the hearts and minds of the participants to consider what is meaningful for them both in their lives now and as they consider their unknown expiration date.”

- Mary Fleck Seabrook Island Village Educational Program Coordinator
