The Moments Before & After Death

Hugh Elliott wrote, "Death can sneak up on you like a silent kitten, surprising you with it's touch and you have a right to act surprised. Other times death stomps in the front door, unwanted and unannounced, and makes it's noisy way to your seat on the sofa."

Honestly, the experience is different for everyone, as is the way we face the very possibility of our death. We can discover great lessons for those in our lives who are faced with terminal illness, such as humility, acceptance, and the power of compassion to heal old emotional scars. We can also find value in posthumously caring for others, through organ and tissue donation. This section has both practical and insightful reading materials, including valuable information on who to call first, and how to share the sad news with family and friends. Should you have questions on anything you find here, please call us.
