PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- A free workshop on death, dying, and long-term planning will take place from 6-9 p.m. tonight (Tuesday, Dec. 22) at Big Bang Coffee Roasters in Peekskill.
The workshop is being hosted by Michelle Carter Verna of New York Funeral Consulting and Al Pucci of New York Life.
This is a free event, but an RSVP is requested at NYFuneralConsulting.com/Events.
While death, dying and planning aren’t topics people talk about often, Carter Verna said, holiday time, when families are together, is the perfect time for important family discussions.
“It’s a happy time of year, but for many, it’s also one of those increasingly rare times when everyone is together at once, “ Carter Verna said. “The best time to have family discussions is before a crisis arises.”
Carter Verna and Pucci will speak about the basics of funeral and long-term financial planning, and strategies for how to talk about it with family.
The second half of the evening will be a “Death Café” experience and open discussion about death, dying, and planning.
The café is located at 1008 Main St., Peekskill. For more information about the café, click here , or call (914) 402-1280.
