    Being a Veteran myself, my will is already made. If I'm that far gone, I have a DNR. Hopefully I'll go quick though

    WTF is a "Death Cafe"?! As a conscientious military wife I have all my final arrangements in place: if I succumb to dementia as did my late beloved father, my husband the military medical professional knows what to do, and how to do it untraceably. My will is up-to-date, and I have already contracted with BioGift (biogift.org) to donate my body to science/medicine...hence no "funeral" (YUCK!) and no funeral expense. My much-younger husband will almost certainly outlive me, and if he wants to throw a party after I die, in celebration of my life, that's entirely up to him.

    not sure if I believe in an after life, better to live for the present & not count on anything else. Sure, I'd go to a death cafe..never heard of these but why not?

    I think as you get older, you start to think more about death than when your a young person.

    It's perfectly normal to think about these things. I'm sure everyone does at one time or another. Don't care to discuss it with strangers though.

    Never heard of that, it's weird. I don't think about how I want to die or when, Only how I don't want to die (painfully) or live too long and suffer. I'm donating my body to science. No cost, no family burden and I can do something for humanity even after I'm gone. believe in life after death, so not worried about it.

    I would just discuss it with my immediate family or whoever would draw up my will not with strangers to me that sounds a bit too morbid and sad.

    Sound sliek somethign that nEEDS to be discussed, whether it it morbid or not. Thing need to be talked about and understood on a personal, freindl ylevel to get anywhere. Just thinking it is too morbid gets everybody nowhere and the topic ignored, which is terrable! Would love to be part of a discussion - seems liek you would make some close freinds at such a place/meeting since you would get to knwo them well quickly as long as its a warm accepting environment willing to debate ideas together

    the important thing to think about is were we will spent life after.

    it's natural to think about death but I wouldn't go to a cafe to discuss with strangers that's siding on the morbid
