butlernathanNathan Butler, a pioneer in the Green Burial movement and a Licensed Funeral Director, will discuss death rituals among cultures through the ages and how care of the body has changed radically since the Civil War era, and the advent of embalming.  Butler will define the limited laws restricting a family’s right to care for their dead and describe the natural processes that occur when a human dies.  Questions are welcome.
