A wonderful, poignant animated short. Well read, Jenny! Well drawn, Jotham. A great accompaniment for this poem. I'll share this video with friends wherever I can find a place!

Beautiful. Thank you for sharing this with the world. Are the Talking About Dying talks recorded and available somewhere? This is a very important topic for me. Will there be more talks on the subject?
