Until We Meet Again

Maryanne Pope (Author of "A Widow's Awakening")

An episode of Until We Meet Again

Despite amazing advances in medical science and technology, the mortality rate for human beings stands at 100 percent. Yet, in the face of this statistical reality, death still manages to come as a shock.

Join Elizabeth Fournier, host of KKPZ's show "Until We Meet Again" as we gently open up conversations about death in a culture that often is left wondering what to say or do in response. Please join us every Thursday at 2pm on KKPZ-AM, 1330, Portland, Oregon.
