Take me back oh hills I love,
Lift me from this lonely bed,
Light my way with stars above,
Curl soft winds about my head,
Wash my feet in crystal streams,
Cradle my arms in boughs of oak,
Breathe the scent of pine for dreams,
Wrap me tight in earthen cloak.

CROSSINGS is a home funeral and green burial resource center. We exist to foster the integration of dying and after-death care back into our family and community life. We strive to increase awareness of alternatives to conventional funeral and burial care. We believe that home funeral and green burial care are more meaningful, affordable and environmentally responsible.


We do this through:

  • Education—letting families know that they are THE decision-makers in after-death care and can exercise choices that will bring about greater healing.
  • Information—making information available on the exact choices available to you in creating a better experience in after-death care whether working with or without a funeral director.
  • Inspiration—disseminating stories of people who have transformed their experiences around death by creating unique, memorable and beautiful after-death care.
