Soothing Sounds....

I had a great session today with husband and wife music-thanatology team, Tony Pederson and Margaret Pasquesi. I didn't know what a music thanatologist was until I spoke with them. What a remarkable talent and calling they both have! They use singing and harps at the bedside of the dying to ease the transition from life to death and also to provide comfort for the families. They told me that they are two of only 70 music thanatologists around today. If you would like to learn more about this amazing profession, click here.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from today.
