Q+A: : Death and Dying in the Modern Age

There is no more universal truth in life than death. No matter who you are, it is certain that one day you will die, but the mechanics and understanding of that experience will differ greatly in today’s modern age. Sparrow asked our friends, family and people we admire to join the conversation about death and dying. Read about their broader look on how we die today, from the cellular level up to the very definition of death itself.

Open casket wake? Burial? Cremation?

I don’t want any of these things because I do not want to be dead and it is scary. But I guess I’d want to be cremated.

Everyone will have to wear couture to my funeral. Then the people closest to me will have to mourn for a year like 19th century Sicilian widows. The more drama the better.
