  1. Dear Catriona,
    I was very interested and impressed to read about the Death Cafe at Designs. I would have been there but for a previous engagement, I didn’t hear about it until a few days before. I am very anxious to attend the next one and would be prepared to help with the running of it. I have lived in this area all my life and have a social work background so might be of some help. I am in touch with the End of Life research at the Crichton too. I live in Dumfries.
    I look forward to hearing from you
    Best wishes
    Margaret Dobie

  3. I attended the death cafe in Castle Douglas in May. My sister died of cancer a few years ago and I spent the last 7 months of her life with her and her family. I also have people I am close to who have terminal illness at the moment. I am not very well myself so would not be up to organising a death cafe. I would like to take part in research that was mentioned.
    I would like to re commend a book of very accessible poems by the writer Michel Faber called “The Undying- a love story.” It raises an awful lot of issues about cancer treatment, bereavement and death and is funny and very moving. Penny Lilley, Castle Douglas.
