"Death isn't given time; the time that is needed." Molly, a death doula and lover of the woods, works with clients nearing the end of their lives to confront the fear, anxiety, and hope surrounding death. As Molly inspires those around her to be more open about their mortality, she reflects on her own relationship with loss.
