‘Before I die...’ blackboard makes its way to Mount Olivet Cemetery

Author: Paula Deangelis



Nancy Weil has introduced laughter yoga, drum circles and the Heavenly Hearts Choir into her work as director of grief support services with the Catholic Cemeteries in the Buffalo Diocese.

Her boss, Carmen Colao, let Weil run with the ideas to help people work through mourning.

The latest pitch gave him pause. But Colao has watched in amazement this summer as visitors to Mount Olivet Cemetery in the Town of Tonawanda have pondered these words on two blackboards: “Before I die I want to _______.”

Hopes, dreams and prayers have spilled on to the boards in colored chalk.

Not how, but now

Author: Paula Deangelis

‘This is the day

the Lord has made,

let us rejoice

and be glad in it.’
