Dying and death bring fear, the experience of dying and caring for the dying can become the deepest experience of love. Henri Nouwen has walked this path with family and friends, and speaks about death as the greatest gift we have. The question he raises is not, "How much can we still do in the years or months we have left to live?", but, "How can we prepare ourselves for our death in such a way that our death can become fruitful in the life of others?".;In these personal reflections, the author hopes to encourage those who are dying to die well and those who care for the dying to care well.
