A GIFT for someone who is dying


A book that says what you want to say

when you think,

I don’t know what to say!”

I recommend this resource especially to those who are dealing right now with the imminent death of someone—as a way to reflect feelings and share with special people around them. I would suggest that both caregivers and care receivers can be affirmed and supported through these pages. It says what we may want to say when we think to ourselves, “I don’t know what to say.” [Richard Bimler, LHD, LittD, National Interfaith Coalition on Aging]

I opened the book and found a beautiful gift. The images quicken my heart and remind me of the beauty I’ve experienced at the bedside of dying loved ones and clients. Each page invites me to stop, meditate, and appreciate. Exquisite images and words will lighten any heart facing death…and life. [Linda M. Amador, MDiv, MPH, CT, CRP, Spiritual Director, Grief Facilitator, Hospice/Hospital Chaplain]

Whether you are a private person and want to work through your thoughts by yourself, or if you would like to share this book as a way to encourage others to support you on your journey, Facing Death is a healing gift for us all. [Viki Kind, MA. Bioethicist, hospice volunteer and medical educator]
