Announcing that Wendy (former student with LDMonline) and Jennifer (LDMonline facilitator) are now CERTIFIED THANATOLOGISTS! They passed the exam that they wrote with the Association for Death Education and Counseling! Wendy says she is going to frame hers and put it in the front entrance way to her home, along with a brief (10,000 words or less) explanation of what Thanatology IS! Jennifer is dancing up and down the streets in New York City, and has not been reachable since getting the big news!
Congratulations Jen and Wendy!
