Death Comes Home is a portrait of three families who have chosen to forego the funeral director and prescribed memorial to instead care for their dead at home.

Part of a growing national "home funeral" movement, these families are redefining America's death rituals.

Death Comes Home won the Best New Artist Award in the 2009 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. The story was produced with advisors Claire Schoen and Cynthia Gorney.
