“Our death is just that; it’s ours alone,” says the author, a hospital chaplain and member of its End of Life Committee. “Dying, however, doesn’t have to be a solitary event. You don’t have to do this alone, whether you are planning for your own death or caring for someone who is dying.” The suggestions in this concise booklet can help lay the ground work for someone to die, “comforted by knowing that he or she has done what was possible to prepare the way for a quiet and holy passage home to the Creator.
