At the age of thirteen, Lani Leary was unable to process the regret, confusion and loss she experienced after her mother died, and spent the rest of her life learning about the needs of the dying and the bereaved. A self-proclaimed “midwife” to the dying, Leary was able to assist her father in his “final journey” and find peace and meaning in his passing using the tools she shares in this book. Within these pages caregivers will learn how to support their loved one during the process of dying, what to expect, how to cope, and the keys to a gentler grief. And readers will learn how to prepare for their own death so as to live life more fully.
