Unfortunately, my mother seems to be taking a turn for the worse and I need some help in learning how to deal with this and in helping both my mother and the rest of my family transition through. Does anyone have any book deals on Death and Dying books?

Thanks.

So sorry to hear about your mother.  My best friend's mother passed away last year.  She found the book Tear Soup to be simple yet comforting.

Prayers,

Jeannette

Heather, you should contact your local Hospice right away... They not only can help you and your family  through this...but also have lots of material for your to read.

Thank you. She isn't quite *that* bad yet but she has a condition that only has a 20% survival rate, along with other complications/issues. It's a bit early, perhaps... but I wanted to try to prepare as best as one could with such a situation.

i'll look for those books. Thanks for the suggestions everyone.
