Each chapter of this book is a true and intimate story of the living, dying and death of a special person and of his or her family. These families have agreed to share their fears, stresses, emotions, joys and sorrows as they accompany their loved one through the journey of death. Their stories are an inspiration, but they also convey the importance of telling the truth in a painful situation, of listening, showing compassion, and celebrating life, in the midst of dying.
