Wisdom on how to be with someone who is dying.

It is unusual, even more so in these times, to get to participate in what seems to me the parts of a death experience. I have been able to be at the deaths of both my parents and Eric’s dad, Gerry. Below are what has emerged as important to me.

Wisdom to take with you into difficult times of being with a loved one in their final days.

  • Telling the loved one what they meant to you

  • Giving them permission to leave

  • Bonding as a family over shared memories and

  • Thinking about your own life and legacy means

  • And most importantly for me is having worked to repair relationships while the person is still alive. This has the benefits of having less regrets when the person is gone and not missing years of enjoying life together.
