    This powerful, four-part video, as much about living as it is about dying, focuses on three terminally ill people. In Parts 1 and 2, Cindy, Fred, and Clara, along with their family members and health-care and hospice professionals, openly discuss common issues surrounding death, including fears, denial, and avoiding the topic, and dying people themselves, altogether. In Parts 3 and 4, viewers are offered specific, practical ways that all of us--health-care professionals, friends, and family members alike--can better understand, comfort and support people through the dying process.

    * * * 1/2 “...absorbing…Addressing the subject of death in a realistic and frank manner that’s also sensitive, this program would be especially instructive for medical professionals and caregivers, and inspirational to the terminally ill and their families. Highly recommended.” - Video Librarian

    “...most useful to caregivers and potential caregivers of the terminally ill and is recommended for academic libraries supporting healthcare, social services, or elder care programs and volunteer organizations responsible for recruitment and training of hospice workers.” - Library Journal

    "This is a powerful video--reminiscent of Tuesdays with Morrie. It reminds us that there can be meaningful life, even as we die. This is a great teaching tool--a true find." - Dr. Kenneth J. Doka, Ph.D., Senior Consultant, Hospice Foundation of America

    "'5 Star Rating' out of a possible 5 for its content and presentation. It is indeed one of the best films that I have seen on the dying and death process." -Healing Ministries
