Sometimes, the greatest gifts we give are the ones we give at the end. This inspiring, gripping book is packed with end-of-life giftswords of wisdom and lessons learned from people in their final days. In each chapter, we hear from a hospice worker who has spent hundreds of hours with the dying, listening to their stories, assisting their loved ones, and absorbing the hard, hopeful, and helpful truths about life that become most clear when death is near. In Lessons for the Living from the Dying, these workers pass those truths to us and invite us to live richer, better lives by drawing on the wisdom of those who have journeyed on.
