Samenvatting

In Mormonism we are sometimes seemingly casual

about death: it's a veil or a mission call to the spirit

world. But our actual encounters with the reality of

death inevitably change us in ways that are difficult

to articulate.

In this collection, Mormon writers wrestle with

mortality and its aftermath. A family sings a hesitant

rendition of Happy Birthday to a grief-stricken

mother who buried her toddler just a few hours earlier;

an agnostic son decides he's Mormon enough to

arrange a funeral for his believing father.

Some essays use death as a means to understand

faith. One author imagines a world where Heavenly

Mother visits her children in the form of their

female ancestors, appearing to her descendants in

times of grief or pain.

Others address practicalities: how do you protect

your children from death while still allowing them

to experience the world; how do you get through

one more nausea-ridden day of cancer treatment?

Still others delve into death's questions: does the

overwhelming suffering that occurs in the animal

kingdom have a function in the "plan of happiness"?

Sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreaking,

always thought-provoking, these personal essays,

poems, and stories may never be heard at a Mormon

funeral. But they probably should be.
