Finding Your Way to Say Goodbye
Comfort for the Dying and Those Who Care for Them
Written by a person who has been comforting and counseling terminally ill people for years, this book offers guidance, support, and encouragement for both those who are approaching death as well as their families, friends, counselors, medical and hospice practitioners, and chaplains.
Consisting of short "chapters," each including a spiritual reflection, Smith moves the reader or caregiver from "admitting that you know" to "finishing the race."
Along the way comfort and guidance are offered on issues such as: Releasing Control, Dealing with Privacy, Crying, Partnering with Physicians, Embracing God, Expressing Anger, Forgiving, Reviewing Your Life, Making a Valid Will, Making Visitors Comfortable, Telling Your Stories, and Composing Your Goodbyes.
