Thank you for this interesting, well-researched, beautifully-written story. It's inspiring to see what is happening in other parts of the country and to meet some of the leaders in the natural death care movement. Your title, “Green Reaper,” is a delightful pun.
Here in Minneapolis, the Minnesota Threshold Network held a public information session this month on home funerals and green burials. Last week Nancy Jewel Poer showed her new film about the home death of her brother Jack. And our local Trust for a Natural Legacy hopes to open Minnesota's first green cemetery by 2012. Watch out Colorado, Minnesota is hot on your green reaper heels!
