Where do we put our bodies after we die?  For some people it’s of utmost importance; for others a body is but a shell they are leaving behind.  These days, our options, our attitudes and our planning are all up for grabs. Bev Boyer, runs Peak Research Institute, a cadaver lab in Longmont and she  has created relationships with donors before they die and it makes for a unique and powerful experience for everyone involved.
