FEATURED FILM: Beyond Goodbye

Moving and inspiring: see this film by Jimmy Edmonds that records the life of his son Josh, as it was remembered at his funeral early in 2011. Nicola Dela-Croix says: “Don’t shy away from this film because you’re afraid it will remind you of your mortality and make you cry. Because that’s exactly why you need to see it. Death is part of life and by averting our gaze we deny ourselves the chance to really live it.”
