The Leon County Library Series will help us celebrate life and understand death – Natural Self Esteem

Rev. Candace McKibben

A few months ago, my friend Betty Morales contacted me to help brainstorm a six-week community series “Death and Dying” with Leon County Librarians Kristina Holt and Mary Douglas for the public.

As a new employee at Tallahassee Senior Center, Morales has a crash course in how many excellent offerings the senior center offers, often in partnership with other agencies in our community.

Aiming to be practical, educational, inspirational and more, these many thoughtful courses are designed and delivered with the needs of the community in mind. And there is no more universal issue that affects all of us than preparing well for death, the most common human event.

Morales has been involved in hospice work for 21 years and had a good understanding of issues and connections to many experienced compassionate people to address the issues.
