("When Someone You Love Is Dying: Some Thoughts to Help Yo...)
"When Someone You Love Is Dying: Some Thoughts to Help You Through" offers simple thoughts to help you and your family navigate through what is perhaps the most difficult thing any of us will ever be called upon to do, to be there while someone you love deeply is dying. This is a book for anyone who can use support during this time in your lives. Beautifully illustrated with photographs of nature and inspired by the death of the author's husband. A "first of its kind" and much needed book for caregivers, hospice workers and family members of loved ones who are very ill or dying.
