Knowing what to look for made the difference
I just wanted to say your book helped my wife through the death of her brother in FL … we located a palliative care organization who helped her brother and my wife through his death via cancer. He had lived on the street for 20 years and it was awesome to find people who treated him like a real person and my wife as the grieving sister. Knowing WHAT to look for was a big deal … thank you.
