This band has such blunt lyrics, you will be very surprised." They challenged listeners to buy the group's CD and "if you don't like this type of music, throw away the CD, but keep the lyrics and read them. You will be very surprised at what you read."

Talking about death is a very common fear that has been fos- tered for many centuries. Until recently the subject has been taboo and "swept under the rug" until it affects us personally. Only recently has there been substantial scientific research on the subject. We don't talk about death because we fear it and we know so little about it. In the interest of better mental health, such feelings need to be changed. Public education, based on our new psycho- logical and medical data, offers us our greatest help. Educational helps are becoming more available to us. Some very fine books have been written about death and dying; thana- tology courses are offered in many schools; and many churches now offer classes and discussion groups on the subject. Tours of the funeral home and a variety of programs are avail- able that are designed to help further public education on this sub- ject. Please feel free to call us about a program for your church, service club or other groups and organizations, Sorden-Lewis Funeral Home Lone Tree Chapel (319) 629-5118 Riverside Chapel D.
