This booklet is intended to bring peace and confidence to those who are preparing for death and those accompanying them on the journey. It includes practical advice but primarily emphasizes the spiritual aspects of the dying experience.
The writers of these essays are people who have sat and prayed and sung with loved ones as they made their transitions into a new form of life. Some are ministers, some are professionals with years of hospice and hospital work, some are simply the children and spouses of those who have died. One is a composer whose music for the dying has touched millions of lives.
