This short booklet is a story about a person’s physical preparation for death. Bleitz Funeral gives it out free at hospices to help people and their loved ones get ready for the final transition. Ask your advance planning advisor to give you one.
From the back cover: Anyone who is grieving, preparing to die, caring for ill loved ones, or interested in exploring new ways to view spirituality and death will value this essential tool for healing and prayer. As an introduction to hospice, the book maintains that hospice care is an experience grounded in spirituality – the force that binds everything together.
This interconnectedness of all things is demonstrated in inspirational stories, poetry, scripture, prayers, and guided meditation that will assist those wishing to go spiritually deeper. Further supported by chapters on grief, relaxation tools, and a wealth of additional reference materials, the book becomes a treasury of hope and healing that reframes the experience of death as one of transformation – a new adventure in life.
