When is a Dead Person Allowed to Become a Skull?

By Dr. Peter Maduro, J.D., Psy.D. - Tuesday, November 07, 2017

My friend Sanjay and I lamented the too-early death of the great MLB pitcher, Roy Halladay, age 40, whose dashing new ICON A5 airplane crashed into the Gulf of Mexico today, with Roy in it.
