Everyone should have a copy of this book to assist in preparation of a loved one's death due to terminal illness. It is the "What to expect when expecting" version for death. Moving, well written personal anecdotes by the author make it meaningful and easy to understand and relate to. It definitely helped me with the final days of my friend's final journey.
