As a Funeral Director, I see the emotional states presented in this book on a daily basis. Whether you are dying or you are the spouse, family member, nurse, Hospice, caregiver, or friend, I suggest spending a few minutes to read this book. Everyone desires to die in a dignified manner- loved and with no regrets.

This book is a must read for anyone who is facing death, has a loved one who is terminally ill, for those who work in the hospital, hospice, or long term care. A copy of this book should be every facilities literature rack and at the Chaplains office.
Having been a nurse I felt prepared to care for my dying mother, I eventually brought in Hospice to assist me in my mothers care. However, nothing prepares you for the emotional roller coaster. This book is packed with encouragement, suggestions, and hope. It gives you insight into how the dying person is feeling, what their needs are and ideas how to meet those needs. It reminds you that above all, love the person who is dying. Get your copy today and buy an extra to give away because you will certainly want to share it to help someone else in need.
