If you have ever...
...felt the pain and agony of the death of someone you loved...
...cared for someone while they were completing the last stage of life's journey...
...thought that there must be a better way of facing death than trying to ignore it or refusing to talk about it...
...wanted to know more about hospice and how it can contribute to a better way of living and dying...
...wanted a more thoughtful and reflective way of looking at how dying fits into our way of living...
...this book is for you.

And, if you like to think deeply about the many meanings death can have as the formative culminating event of a human life, this book is for you.

The author, Paul Murphey, has been concerned with these things his whole adult life beginning with the death of his first child and continuing on through his doctoral dissertation and a long career of teaching courses on death and dying. Through the years he has been privileged to be with so many persons living their lives facing death. The impact of the death of his parents and his deep involvement with hospice made the relationship of life to death more than an academic issue to ponder. It increasingly became an enlightening personal experience enabling him to find a better way of living and dying.
