Before We Say Goodbye: Preparing for a Good Death by Ray Simpson
An inspiring but practical resource for preparing for one's death, including moving stories, thought-provoking quotations and comforting prayers and hymns, as well as how to prepare a will and make funeral arrangements.
In a world where nothing is certain except death and taxes (Benjamin Franklin), preparing for one's own death is something that everyone will face. Ray Simpson eases the burden in this heartening and helpful book. Prayers, songs, poems, quotations and Bible readings will provide comfort and encouragement, and stories from the deaths of saints and ordinary people will inspire.
A special section at the end of the book contains helpful forms to fill out, such as 'On My Death Bed' and 'To Find When I Die'. A discussion of funeral arrangements and wills bring to light often overlooked details.
