Once a taboo topic, death is now something we discuss openly and honestly with those nearing the end. Fr. Dick Sparks helps facilitate the conversation between the one dying and those closest to him or her. Sections include: Where do I want to be?, How do I want to live these final days, weeks, months?, Speak up, your feelings and wishes really do matter!, Hospice care is an option, What about pain management?, and Sometimes words of farewell can make all the difference.
