Full Moon Funeral

A midwife finds her new calling.

From the March, 2013 issue

The moon was full and brilliant on the night I first attended a home funeral. It was in the home of my friend Laura, whose mother Sharon had died of cancer. Laura and her sister Beth cared for their mother at home with the help of hospice. They didn't have the money or the desire to send her body to a funeral home.
