Dying Well

It has truly been my pleasure to assist a few people facing death with grace and dignity in putting their affairs in order. Even more pleasurable are those cherished circumstances where those left behind are able to experience closure if not greater closeness. "A good death regardless of the circumstances, means putting medical care in its proper perspective, and not allowing it to dominate." Unfortunately, many people don't die well and fail to take advantage of help that is available including counseling or pyschotherapy for the dying and their family.
