Meet Julie

Hi, I'm Julie. I create ways to educate and help people embrace and prepare for the end of their physical life. I am a non-judgmental end of life advocate for death, souls and bodies. It is impossible to get any more basic than that.

Having worked with death and countless survivors over the years, it is mind-blowing to see how many (millions) of my fellow humans are STILL not preparing themselves (on any level) to reach "RIP" status.

The Eternity Ward is where you will find a list of death care services available. Fees are based on individual need. Connect with me so we can discuss your unique situation.

My entrepreneurial spirit won't allow me to stop so I've developed a couple of conversation ice breaker's for death chats with the family that work. Both items are available for purchase in the Store.  

BONZ Barb BQ Sauce - besides the flavor being to die for, the label is a friendly reminder that time with people you love is precious. Celebrate the time.

BONZ Book - BONZ The Green Side of Sod/The Dark Side of Sod, is a survivor guide for everyBODY, making BONZ the only "Barb" BQ Sauce on the planet with its own self help book.

I'm here to help you live fully, and die in the best shape possible.

Peace and stay tuned,

Julie Pope

"None of us like to think about death but it is something this book brings to the forefront. We do not realize how important it is to have these conversations with our family. It is very inspiring, thought provoking and and easy read."

"Thank you Julie Pope for giving us a gift that we would not have normally chosen for ourselves. Your background knowledge and willingness to offer your expertise on the subject life/death is a blessing. I highly recommend this to all."

They don't stay long as the demand continues to rise as people become aware of the Cover Lafayette Project. The collection continues as temps stay cold and the demand stays strong.
