An inspiring but practical resource for preparing for one's death, including moving stories, thought-provoking quotations and comforting prayers and hymns, as well as how to prepare a will and make funeral arrangements. In a world where nothing is certain except death and taxes, preparing for one's own death is something that everyone will face. Ray Simpson aims to ease the burden in this heartening book. Prayers, songs, poems, quotations and Bible readings aim to provide comfort and encouragement, and stories from the deaths of saints and ordinary people aim to inspire. A section at the end of the book contains helpful forms to fill out, such as "On My Death Bed" and "To Find When I Die". A discussion of funeral arrangements and wills bring to light often overlooked details.
